In addition to the sources listed by Dr. Muriana, I suggest:

Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium (1987). Frederick C. Neidhardt,
editor in chief American Society for Microbiology, Washington. - volume 2
has very extensive, though slightly dated, info. on coli genetics, strains,

Bachmann BJ  E Coli Genetic Stock Centre  Yale University.  Phone: 
203-432-3535.  Dr. Bachmann is very helpful and knowledgeable if you have
an unusual problem or can not locate a strain through other channels.
Strain requests are dealt with promptly.

Methods in Enzymology has a number of useful articles on molecular biology
techniques, with good strain lists.
