Mycoplasmas on the Web
Scientific societies and study groups
- The International Organization for Mycoplasmology (IOM). The IOM is a nonprofit organization founded in 1976 to promote the cooperative international study of mycoplasmas (Mollicutes) and mycoplasmal diseases and to disseminate knowledge about their characteristics, effects, transmission, and control.
- International Research Programme on Comparative Mycoplasmology (IRPCM). The IRPCM is a permament standing committee of the IOM. Its objective is to advance and disseminate knowledge on all aspects of mycoplasmas. In furtherance of this objecitve, the program shall aim to encourage individual and collaborative studies, including the effective exchange of scientific information.
- ESCMID Study Group for Mycoplasma Infections (ESGMI). ESCMID supports a wide array of Study Groups engaged in advancing scientific knowledge and/or disseminating professional guidelines in the field of clinical microbiology and infectious diseases.
- International Phytoplasmologist Working Group (IPWG). The main goal of IPWG is to bring together researchers from entomology, molecular biology, and plant pathology to increase and expand knowledge about phytoplasma diseases worldwide.
- United States Organization for Mycoplasmology (USOM).The USOM is a group of United States scientists dedicated to the study of mycoplasmas, working in industry, government, academe, and research institutes.
EU project H2020
- Minicell project – The goal of the Minicell project is to construct a bacterial drug delivery system. Toward this goal, this project will develop improved computational and chemical tools for reliably designing, synthesizing, and executing genomes, and use these tools to construct a predictable, efficient cellular chassis for future engineering such as drug delivery.
- MolliGen is a database dedicated to the comparative genomics of bacteria belonging to the class Mollicutes.
- NCBI Genomes. Mycoplama genome sequences available at NCBI.
- MyMpn is a database of Mycoplasma pneumoniae experimental datasets. MyMpn includes gene expression, gene essentiality, protein abundance, protein complexes composition, metabolic flux, growth, and 3D tomography data.
- MycoWiki is database of experimental knowledge about individual genes and proteins in M. pneumoniae. MycoWiki contains much of the same data contained in MyMpn, but provides a simpler user interface to browse and search the data.
- iMyco. The metabolic map of Mycoplasma.
