"IMGT Scientific Chart - IMGT Repertoire - New Interface"

IMGT, the international ImMunoGeneTics database, announces:

- IMGT Scientific Chart: A description of IMGT standardized rules to ensure
the highest quality data (unique numbering, gene name nomenclature, FR-IMGT
and CDR-IMGT regions,...)
- IMGT Repertoire: IMGT expertised immunoglobulin and T cell receptor gene
tables ("colliers de perles" representations, alignments and tables of
alleles, protein displays,...)
- a New IMGT/LIGM-DB interface and eight choices to see results (IMGT
annotations, IMGT flat files, coding regions with protein translation,
external references,...)

Also new:

- the Mouse (Mus musculus) germline IGKV gene table
- IMGT reference sequences in FASTA format, accessible from IMGT Repertoire
and from IMGT/DNAPLOT search page, for downloading

IMGT is freely accessible at http://imgt.cnusc.fr:8104

Flash on IMGT:
> 27 000 Ig and TcR sequences of 81 species
> 26 000 sites connected since 1st of january 96
> 4 000 requests a week
