Abstract: The Integrated Microbial Genomes (IMG) system provides a framework for comparative analysis of the genomes sequenced by the Joint Genome Institute. Its goal is to facilitate the visualization and exploration of genomes from a functional and evolutionary perspective. There are two main approaches to using the system: genes and genomes. Genes can be found by keyword or BLAST query via the Gene Search and then analyzed in the context of their chromosomal, metabolic, and phylogenetic neighborhoods. Genomes of multiple organisms can be selected with the Organism Browser. You can then compare them through the Phylogenetic Profiler in order to identify common or unique properties.
