What does it mean for a gene to be active? Transcribed? Translated? Known function? Which tissue?

Probably, you mean a level of gene expression, don't you?

There some databases for it:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/guide/genes-expression/

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/guide/howto/find-exp-pat/.

And what organisms do you study?

Their industrial significance is the most important.

See these papers, for example:

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25344239

http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/26048933

There are very few general reviews for lactobacteria, most of the authors consider one or two bacteria. Try NCBI:

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov and type: gene expression AND Lactobacteria.

I found many papers about different species by this way, you will definitely find yours.
