An electronic version of Bergey's Manuals (on disk or CD) is 
scheduled to be out this summer.  This product will be (among 
other things) a database in which you can search for organisms 
with characteristics similar to those of an isolate (or 
unknown), or you can select a taxonomic group and see the 
complete list of its recorded characteristics.

You can check Bergey's homepage:
which will announce the products availability.  The publisher, 
Williams & Wilkins, also has a home page:
