JGI

A Joint Genome Institute team worked with Pacific Biosciences to create high-resolution phylogenetic profiles of microbial communities from environmental DNA.

A candidate phylum called Candidatus Kryptonia was first detected from a metagenomic sequence database and subsequently studied in more detail.

The genomes of two hemichordate worms served as fodder for comparisons that provide a look at the shared ancestor of animals in the deuterostome super-phylum.

Under its Emerging Technological Opportunities Program, JGI will grant $1.2 million over two years to up to four energy and environmental genomics projects. 

ProDeGe combines homology- and sequence composition-based methods to automatically identify and remove likely contaminants in single-cell sequence data.

JGI is interested in coupling the technique with microfluidics as an automated way of picking out metabolically active cells.

JGI is working to develop technologies around the front and back ends of NGS, and sees rising interest in synthetic biology. 

Metagenomic tools are shedding light on how microbes survive in and contribute to environments ranging from wetlands to natural oil seepage sites, according to presentations at this year's ABRF meeting.

DOE's JGI and Stanford will use Spiral's variant detection solutions in sustainable energy research and disease studies.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – The US Department of Energy's Joint Genome Institute has selected 32 new research projects to receive sequencing and other services in 2015 through its Community Science Program.
