IMGT®

Objectives

IMGT®, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system® http://www.imgt.org [1,2], is a high-quality integrated knowledge resource specializing in immunoglobulins (IG), T cell receptors (TR), major histocompatibility (MH) and related proteins of the immune system (RPI) of human and other vertebrate species, created in 1989 by Marie-Paule Lefranc (Université Montpellier 2 and CNRS). IMGT®, a European project since 1992, works in close collaboration with EBI. IMGT consists of sequence, genome and structure databases, Web resources and interactive tools (IMGT overview). The IMGT server provides a common access to all Immunogenetics data.
