The DOE Joint Genome Institute (JGI) is a large-scale genomic science user facility dedicated to advancing discovery and innovation in support of DOE’s mission areas in energy and the environment. The JGI provides users around the world with access, at no cost, to high-throughput genomic capabilities for microbes, microbial communities, plants, and fungi. In Fiscal Year 2022, the JGI served a worldwide community of 2,243 users from academia, government, and industry. These proposals include genome, transcriptome, metagenome, metatranscriptome, and single-cell sequencing; resequencing; DNA synthesis; and metabolomics. In support of these proposals, JGI produced sequencing output of 658 trillion nucleic acid bases. These data enabled high-impact science from the user community, yielding 252 publications through support and complementary efforts by the JGI Science Programs.
