The AIRR Community is excited to announce that three tools have recently been certified as compliant with the AIRR-C v1.0 standard for AIRR-Seq software tools. These are ImmuneML – an ecosystem for machine learning analysis of adaptive immune receptor repertoires, CompAIRR – a tool for ultra-fast comparison of adaptive immune receptor repertoires by exact and approximate sequence matching, and Dandelion – a tool for analyzing single cell BCR/V(D)J 10x Genomics data.
In an effort to enable rigorous and reproducible immune repertoire research at the largest scale possible, the AIRR-C Software Working Group has established a standard to validate software tools using the AIRR-C Standards and meeting a series of interoperability and quality criteria. Developers interested in certifying their tools should complete the checklist and submit it to the AIRR-C Software Working Group for evaluation and ratification by its members.
More details can be found at the website AIRR Software WG – Guidance for AIRR Software Tools.
All compliant tools will be issued a badge and listed on the website AIRR Software WG – List of Tools Certified as Compliant. The list includes SONAR, ImmuneDB, Immcantation, ImmuneML, CompAIRR and Dandelion.
