NEW YORK, March 2 (GenomeWeb News) - The US Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute released this week its Integrated Microbial Genomes data-management system, JGI said.
IMG is a state-funded offering to the global research community that can be used as a clearinghouse for datasets produced by JGI and other DNA-sequencing centers.
According to JGI, the IMG system currently features over 200 organisms, with an additional 200 already in the queue for 2005. The institute is offering the system to the public on its website.
JGI is planning a series of presentations at various locations throughout March and April in an effort to familiarize the research community with IMG. The schedule is available here.
