[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: The Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) system serves as a community resource for comparative analysis of publicly available
genomes in a comprehensive integrated context. IMG integrates publicly available draft and complete genomes from all three
domains of life with a large number of plasmids and viruses. IMG provides tools and viewers for analyzing and reviewing the
annotations of genes and genomes in a comparative context. IMG's data content and analytical capabilities have been continuously
extended through regular updates since its first release in March 2005. IMG is available at http://img.jgi.doe.gov. Companion IMG systems provide support for expert review of genome annotations (IMG/ER: http://img.jgi.doe.gov/er), teaching courses and training in microbial genome analysis (IMG/EDU: http://img.jgi.doe.gov/edu) and analysis of genomes related to the Human Microbiome Project (IMG/HMP: http://www.hmpdacc-resources.org/img_hmp).
