IMG/M provides tools for analyzing the functional capability of microbial communities based on their metagenome sequence
Tutorial and training materials by OpenHelix
|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.|
- 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

More about the resource:
The Integrated Microbial Genomes with Microbiome samples, or IMG/M system, is an extension of the IMG system. It was developed jointly by the Genome Biology and Microbial Ecology Programs at the Joint Genome Institute of the U.S. Department of Energy, and by the Biological Data Management and Technology Center at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. IMG/M currently contains a number of metagenomes and thousands of traditional genomes.
