The AIRR Community is pleased to announce the release of v1.4 of the AIRR Standards, including v1.2 of the AIRR Data Commons API (ADC API) to query AIRR compliant data repositories. This release enables additional compatibility with single-cell and emerging technologies, supports extended data/metadata capture, and improves data standardization and integration. Major changes include updated quantification fields and conversion of several fields to ontology references to provide consistency across studies.
Several exciting experimental releases are included in this update: new Germline and Genotype schemas for documenting VDJ germline reference sequences and subject VDJ and MHC genotypes, extensions to the Cell schema for storing single-cell gene expression and receptor reactivity, and data aggregation schemas to facilitate more complex and reproducible analyses.
The ADC API specification included in this release contains new capabilities for querying AIRR v1.4 Schema objects including Clone, Cell, CellExpression, and Receptor objects.
