Three new members have joined the JGI User Executive Committee, while six UEC members stepped down at the end of their terms.
Long-term research investments in switchgrass genomics are helping these grasses become a key player in biomass-based fuels.
Congratulations to the 2022 Highly Cited Researchers from the JGI recognized for their “significant influence by Clarivate Analytics.
A crossover podcast on the JGI’s Community Science Program: what a CSP is, how you apply for and get one, and what happens once you do.
Twice each year, the JGI selects novel research projects through our New Investigator call under our Community Science Program.
To make fuels and chemicals from plants, we’ll need new ways of processing bark, shoots and leaves. Hear from JGI User Michelle O’Malley about the gut fungi that could be the key to better biomass breakdown.
Hear the 2022 cohort of UC Merced undergraduate and graduate students share how their summer internship experiences at the JGI have influenced their careers in science.
Researchers are forming communities to generate high quality genomes in partnership with the JGI to benefit scientists around the world.
Since 2016, the JGI has leveraged their work as pioneers in metagenomics to boost understanding of environmental viruses. At the time, the JGI expanded its existing Integrated Microbial Genomes & Microbiomes database to include a dedicated section for viruses; the latest release of IMG/VR currently features over 15 million viral genomes.
The JGI’s Community Science Program gives researchers access to all kinds of sequencing, ‘omics and bioinformatics capabilities — and it’s open to scientists at any career stage, anywhere in the world, for free. We accept new projects related to energy and the environment several times a year. A few proposal calls have deadlines coming up – in January, March, and later on in the spring.
In this episode, hear proposal tips from Tanja Woyke, who runs user programs at the JGI, and project manager Miranda Harmon-Smith, who helps shepherd CSP projects along.
