To develop, maintain and promote minimal reporting standards for AIRR-seq data.
Minimal Standard for Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire (MiAIRR)
One of the primary initiatives of the AIRR Community has been to develop a set of metadata standards for the submission of immune receptor repertoire sequencing datasets. In order to support reproducibility, standard quality control, and data deposition in a common repository, the AIRR Community has agreed to six high-level data sets that will guide the publication, curation and sharing of AIRR-Seq data and metadata: Study and subject, sample collection, sample processing and sequencing, raw sequences, processing of sequence data, and processed AIRR sequences. The overall goal of this standard is that sufficient detail be provided such that a person skilled in the art of AIRR sequencing and data analysis will be able to reproduce the experiment and data analyses that were performed. The development and implementation of the AIRR data standards in NCBI will benefit the whole AIRR community and accelerate widespread use and adoption of immune repertoire research.
An implementation of the AIRR data standard has been developed for the NCBI repositories (BioProject, BioSample, Sequence Read Archive (SRA) and GenBank). Each of these repositories stores a subset of the information associated with the six sets as follows:
Plan for 2019/2020 include:
* Finalize the current draft specifications for single-cell extensions (scXT)
of the MiAIRR data standard, which were approved as preliminary standard
by AIRR GA at the Genoa meeting.
* Prepare and publish a manuscript describing the revised MiAIRR 1.2 standard
and the finalized scXT.
* Transition the WG into a standing committee (SC) tasked with providing
oversight over the MiAIRR data standard (“MiAIRR SC”).
* Continue the “OntoVoc Team” in the current form as cross-WG activity to
identify and recommend ontologies for AIRR Community standards.
