The Integrated Microbial Genomes with Microbiome samples (IMG/M) resource is a Data Management & Analysis System which provides tools for analyzing microbial community genomes (metagenomes). IMG/M offers analysis of the functional capability of microbial communities based on their metagenome sequence, in the context of reference isolate genomes included from the Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) system. IMG/M also provides tools which allow for genomic comparisons, and examination of the phylogenetic affiliations of genes within the genome.

You will learn:

  • how to analyze the diversity and abundance of the microbes in a community
  • how to search for genes and navigate the gene details page
  • how to examine the relative abundance of various protein families in a microbial community
  • how to use tools for functional comparisons of genomes
  • how to examine the phylogenetic affiliations of genes within the genome
