Classic E. coli reference strain is E. coli K-12 strain MG1655 sequenced for the first time by Blattner et al in 1997. That strain is available here: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/nuccore/U00096.3 (this may be equivalent to: ftp://ftp.ncbi.nih.gov/genomes/Bacte...1655_uid57779/)

That said you should ask the person you are working with as to what strain you should use for the analysis.
