DOE/Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is supported by the U.S. Department of Energy Office of Science. It is located in Walnut Creek, California. Its purpose it to unite the expertise of Lawrence Berkeley, Lawrence Livermore labs, Los Alamos, Oak Ridge, Pacific Northwest and the Hudson/Alpha Institute for biotechnology for the expressed purpose of advancing genomics in support of DOE's mission related to clean energy, environmental characterization and clean up of environmentally harmful sites. The University of California manages JGI for DOE. JGI news releases and research studies are available to the media and the public. Links to major publications with abstracts are available on the JGI Web site.

Calculating the costs of multiple switchgrass gene copies

A collaborative team led by researchers at the University of Texas (UT) at Austin, the HudsonAlpha Institute for Biotechnology (HudsonAlpha), and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Joint Genome Institute (JGI), a DOE Office ...

A plant root atlas for tracking developmental trajectories

A collaborative team led by Geoffrey Schiebinger at the University of British Columbia, Philip Benfey at Duke University and Uwe Ohler at Humboldt Universit├Ąt zu Berlin has developed an atlas that maps gene expression patterns ...

Enlarging windows into understanding gene functions

In a text file, the rows of letters A, T, C and G appearing over and over in a dizzying array of combinations, are unremarkable, save perhaps for the absence of all the other letters of the alphabet. Yet the specific sequence ...

Marine microbe contains multitudes

A deep dive into microbial genomics reveals one bacterial species is made of four ecologically distinct groups with different lifestyles.

Promoting the power of viral metagenomics

Since early 2020, people all over the world have been forced to confront the awesome power that viruses have to affect nearly every aspect of our daily lives. But for researchers who study viruses that infect organisms much ...

Plotting a model for virus-host warfare deep below ground

Altiarchaea are carbon-fixing microbes and targets of multiple viruses in Earth's deep subsurface. They are abundant representatives of deep subsurface ecosystems. A team of researchers described how the viruses repeatedly ...

Gut fungi: Unexpected source of novel chemicals

Anaerobic fungi, which die in the presence of oxygen, dwell in herbivore guts and help them digest their last leafy meal. In their evolutionary history, these fungi branched off early from aerobic fungi, which can breathe ...

An automated tool for assessing virus data quality

Through advances in sequencing technologies and computational approaches, more and more virus sequences are being recovered and identified from environmental samples (metagenomes). However, the quality and completeness of ...
