submitted by: OpenHelix

For more information about this resource, see our blog post at URL http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=13147. We visit both IMG/M (IMG with Microbiome Samples) (briefly) and the Integrated Microbial Genomes-Human Microbiome Project, or IMG/HMP in today’s tip.

Tip of the Week: Comparing Microbial Databases

submitted by: OpenHelix

In this tip of the week by OpenHelix, I will briefly compare two great microbial databases - the UCSC Microbial Genome Browser & the Integrated Microbial Genomes or IMG resource. More details and microbial resources are included in the full post, which can be accessed at http://blog.openhelix.eu/?p=5651
