We learned about many kinds of annotation projects. Charles Hardnet from Spelman College showed electron micrographs of the phage that his students isolated and annotated through their school’s partnership with HHMI. For the bacterial projects, Derek Wood, Brad Goodner, Daniel Rhoades, and Steve Slater from colleges across the US described a joint endeavor where students… [Read More]
The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI) has selected 71 new genomic sequencing projects for its 2010 Community Sequencing Program (CSP)a targeted sampling of the planet’s biodiversity to be characterized for bioenergy, climate, and environmental applications. JGI’s Community Sequencing Program is the largest genomic sequencing effort in the world focused on nonmedical… [Read More]
The US Department of Energy’s Joint Genome Institute has released an updated microbial genomics resource for researchers that now includes reference genomes and metagenomic data, JGI said Tuesday. The Integrated Microbial Genomes system with Microbiomes (IMG/M) 2.8 contains tools for analysis of microbial communities based on their metagenome sequence, within the context of reference isolate… [Read More]
