DOE JGI launches IMG public online microbial genome data clearinghouse
...0 organisms, with an additional 200 already in the queue
for 2005. The release of IMG, accessible to the public at http://img.jgi.doe.gov/, is the result of a collaboration between the DOE JGI and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's Biological Data Management and Technology Center (BDMTC). "As the num...
The higher the hierarchy, the greater the aggression
...ggression would be highest toward the front of the queue
and that the aggression would increase as the time available to inherit the ability to breed ran out in seasonal animals. These predictions were tested on field colonies of the paper wasp Polistes dominulus by recording aggression between all group m...

to inherit the prize of being the queen or breeder...always becomes the next breeder. The wasps in this queue
face a fundamental trade-off: by working harder, they help the group as a whole and as a result indi...
Puzzling plankton yield secrets to role in evolution/global photosynthesis
...h even more picoplankton genomes in the sequencing queue
at DOE JGI, we’re positioned to secure a better grasp on the mechanisms of species adaptation and the great diversity of biological pathways operating in the oceans," said Grigoriev. "This will also enable us to predict the roles of these organisms ...
