Organisms and Progress

For a current list of organisms being sequenced and their status, search DOE JGI's website.

Through its Microbial Genome Program (MGP, 1994-2005) and its Genomic Science Program (GSP), DOE’s Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) has sequenced more than 541 microbial genomes and microbial communities having specialized biological capabilities.

Most microbes of interest to DOE are sequenced at the DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI). Through the DOE JGI Community Sequencing Program, researchers anywhere can propose candidates for sequencing that bear on DOE missions in bioenergy, climate change, or bioremediation. At the completion of any sequencing project, all data are made available to the entire community. For more about this program, see our Sequencing Candidates page.

An archive list of microbes sequenced by institutes other than JGI is available here [PDF].
