New families introduced within the order Enterobacterales
Phylogenetic tree for the order <i>Enterobacteriales</i>.

The order Enterobacterales (formerly called Enterobacteriales) previously consisted of bacteria with different properties and phylogenetically, these bacteria were far apart. In order for the taxonomy to be more in line with phylogeny, some of these bacteria have, therefore, been sorted into 6 new families.

This database contains information about 276 species (and subspecies) of importance in veterinary bacterio­logy. These species belong to 100 genera and you can click on Genus to select a genus from the alpha­betical list. You can also use the search facility on the left. Enter just a few letters from the word/name you are looking for; there is no need to enter a complete word.

You can click on an arbitrary taxonomic level (Phylum, Class, Order, Family, Genus) on the blue bar to view the groups that are included in VetBact and you can then click on a specific category. For example, if you first clicked on "Order", you can then click on a specific order such as Spirochaetales to list the categories at the level below, in this case families.
