DOE JGI extends the capabilities of the Integrated Microbial Genome System
Date:9/8/2008

(PLoS One 3, April 2008).

"The IMG/M system is the most comprehensive and constantly evolving resource for analyzing metagenomic data, offering an array of valuable analysis tools in conjunction with links to major public databases," said Nature Biotechnology paper author Ludmila Chistoserdova, a microbiologist at the University of Washington. "While very powerful, the system is user friendly and intuitive, a true 'one-stop-shop' for metagenomics researchers." More details on IMG/M are available at: http://img.jgi.doe.gov/img_mw_v241/doc/releaseNotes.pdf.

A special version of IMG, IMG/EDU, has been established to support DOE JGI's Education Program in Microbial Genome Annotation (http://www.jgi.doe.gov/education/genomeannotation.html) for teaching microbial genome analysis and annotation using specific microbial genomes in the comparative context of all the genomes available in IMG.

"IMG/EDU will serve as the core of a web-based portal that enables undergraduates to participate in microbial genome annotation," said Cheryl Kerfeld, head of DOE JGI's Education Program. "Currently, students at 12 schools nationally are using the portal in their molecular biology, genetics, microbiology and biochemistry courses in which they examine gene calls and annotate genes and biochemical pathways. By helping to build curated genomes with researchers across the globe, undergraduates will discover the concepts and applications of bioinformatics using IMG/EDU." An additional resource, IMG/ACT (http://jgi.doe.gov/education/annotation_tools.html), provides support for managing student classes and assignments, as well as for sharing teaching materials and guiding students in their study of gene calls and functional annotations.
