The IMP 2.7.0 release contains bug fixes and major updates, including a preview of mmCIF support for deposition of integrative models in PDB-dev. See the IMP::pmi::mmcif module for more details. This release also includes a number of bug fixes and performance improvements. Note that this will be the last release that includes packages for RedHat Enterprise Linux 5 (and variants, such as CentOS 5), since RHEL 5 has reached end of life.

The IMP 2.6.1 release contains minor bug and documentation fixes.
Mar 28, 2016
The IMP 2.6.0 release contains bug fixes and minor updates. Most notably we include most of the functionality of PMI2. This is an improved version of PMI that is faster than PMI1, more modular, and easier to use. See IMP::pmi for more information. This release also includes a number of bug fixes, most notably in the creation of sampled electron microscopy density maps.

The IMP 2.5.0 release contains bug fixes and minor updates. Most notably the documentation has been revised and updated; we now provide binary packages for Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) in addition to 14.04 (Trusty Tahr); a lot of obsolete and deprecated functionality has been removed; support for OpenMP and MPI is improved; and the IMP::base and IMP::kernel namespaces are now deprecated in favor of the top-level "IMP" namespace.

The IMP 2.4.0 release contains bug fixes and updates. Most notably Python 3 is now supported, and a new tutorial example that determines the structure of part of RNA Polymerase II, using the IMP::pmi module, is now available.
Dec 01, 2014
The IMP 2.3.1 release is a bug fix and minor update release. Most notably two complete modeling examples that use the IMP::pmi module are now fully functional: modeling of the Nup84 subcomplex of the nuclear pore complex and of RNA Polymerase II.

The IMP 2.3.0 release contains bug fixes and updates. Most notably the experimental IMP::pmi module is now available. This provides a variety of high-level Python classes to simplify the construction of a modeling protocol in IMP. One recent use of PMI is the modeling of the Nup84 subcomplex of the nuclear pore complex. We also now provide binary packages for Ubuntu LTS and 64-bit Windows.

The IMP 2.2.1 release contains minor updates to 2.2.0, including build and documentation fixes and a fix for the ligand_score application.
Apr 9, 2014
The IMP 2.2.0 release contains a number of new features, notably support for SOAP scoring and a more reliable RMF file format.
Nov 4, 2013
The IMP 2.1.1 release contains minor updates to 2.1.0, most notably support for the new Mac OS X release (Mavericks).
Oct 24, 2013
The IMP 2.1.0 release contains bug fixes and updates. We now provide several fully worked examples of biological systems that were investigated with IMP, from our own publications.
May 02, 2013
The IMP 2.0.1 release contains several new applications to tackle certain modeling problems, including
  • EMageFit to build assembly models using electron microscopy images (class averages)
  • multifit and cnmultifit to build assembly models using electron microscopy density maps
  • Integrative docking to improve pairwise docking using a variety of additional experimental information sources
  • saxs_merge, a fully automated statistical method for merging small-angle X-ray (SAXS) profiles using Gaussian processes

IMP has been employed to translate tethered conformation capture (TCC) data into physical chromatin contacts in a population of three-dimensional genome structures. Statistical analysis of the resulting population demonstrates that the indiscriminate properties of interchromosomal interactions are consistent with the well-known architectural features of the human genome. more...
