The ImMunoGeneTics database, IMGT, is an integrated specialised database
containing nucleotide sequence information of genes important in the function
of the immune system. It collects and annotates sequences belonging to the
immunoglobulin superfamily which are involved in immune recognition, these are
the B cell antigen receptor (Immunoglobulin or Ig), the T cell antigen receptor
(TCR) (LIGM-database) and the class I and class II molecules of the 
Human Leucocyte Antigens (HLA) system (HLA-database).

An integrated immumogenetics database (IMGT/LIGM) specialising in Ig and TcR is
under development through collaboration between LIGM, IFG and EMBL oustation
EBI. This database consists of the Ig and TcR sequence entries.
Release 96.08 contains 7674 fully annotated sequence entries.
