DOE JGI releases enhanced Genome Data Management System IMG 2.1 marking 2-year anniversary

r the breakdown of cellulose to sugars that, in turn, can be ferment into ethanol and other biofuels.

"We continue to expand IMGs functionality in response to the demand in the rapidly growing microbial genomics domain," said Victor Markowitz, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory Biological Data Management and Technology Center (BDMTC) head and IMGs system development lead. "The outstanding computing and data management expertise and infrastructure at DOEs national labs have contributed to our success to date and will sustain IMGs future growth."

"While IMG is already used for teaching microbiology courses in several universities, we are now developing the necessary features and tutorials for incorporating IMG into DOE JGIs educational outreach program," said Kyrpides.

"IMG has become a major resource my graduate course focusing on integrating genomics into microbial ecology research," said Mary Ann Moran of the Department of Marine Sciences at University of Georgia in Athens. "The students find the tools intuitive and easy to use, and I've developed a suite of exercises that makes use of the IMGs various analysis capabilities."

"We are delighted that the new version of IMG incorporates the genomes of plasmids," said Anne Summers of the Department of Microbiology, also at the University of Georgia, "We picked IMG to become the mobile genetic element home on the basis of its user-friendly cataloging of bacterial genomes and viruses, its commitment to ongoing development of its tools, and the fact that the developers are willing to work closely with the mobile genetic element community. We look forward to a continuing collaboration with IMG in making the plasmid component of their database a valuable tool, especially for the rapidly growing study of horizontal gene transfer and for applications in genetic engineering."

IMG 2.1 comprises a total of 2,782 genomes661 bacterial, 34 archaeal, 24 eukaryotic genomes, 1,66
