Encyclopedia > Integrated Microbial Genomes System

The Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) is a genome browsing and annotation system developed by the DOE-Joint Genome Institute. IMG contains all the draft and complete microbial genomes sequenced by the DOE-JGI integrated with other publicly available genomes (including Archaea, Bacteria, Eukarya, Viruses and Plasmids). IMG provides a set of tools for comparative analysis of genes, genomes and functions. The Joint Genome Institute Production Genomics Facility is located in Walnut Creek, California. ...

Users can employee a set of powerful tools for comparative analysis and explore the microbial genomes along its 3 main dimensions (genomes, genes and functions), select them and transfer them in the comparative analysis carts.

Users can also type or upload their own gene annotations (called MyIMG gene annotations) and the IMG system will allow them to generate Genbank or EMBL format files containing these annotations. The GenBank sequence database is an annotated collection of all publicly available nucleotide sequences and their protein translations. ... The European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL) is a molecular biology research institution supported by 17 European countries. ...

The Integrated Microbial Genomes with Microbiome Samples (IMG/M) system is an extension of the IMG system providing a comparative analysis context of metagenomic data with the publicly available isolate genomes. Metagenomics (also Environmental Genomics, Ecogenomics or Community Genomics) is the study of genomes recovered from environmental samples as opposed to from clonal cultures. ...
