The AIRR Community welcomes collaboration and publication by its Working Group members. AIRR-C endorsement of a manuscript is intended to certify to the scientific community that the content of the manuscript is a product of an AIRR-C effort or initiative. Since 2017 the Community has endorsed and published six papers:
- Christley et al. The ADC API: a web API for the programmatic query of the AIRR Data Commons (Frontiers in Big Data, 2020) outlines the API (Application Programming Interface) for curating and sharing data in the AIRR Data Commons (ADC).
Lees et al. OGRDB: a reference database of inferred immune receptor genes introduces a new database for storing immunoglobulin and T-cell receptor genes inferred from AIRR-seq data (Nucleic Acids Research, 2020).
- Ohlin et al. Inferred Allelic Variants of Immunoglobulin Receptor Genes: A System for Their Evaluation, Documentation, and Naming (Frontiers in Immunology, 2019) summarizes recommendations developed by the IARC—focusing, to begin with, on human IGHV genes—with the goal of facilitating the acceptance of inferred allelic variants of germline IGHV genes.
- Vander Heiden et al. AIRR Community Standardized Representations for Annotated Immune Repertoires (Frontiers in Immunology, 2018) describes the standardized data representations for storing and sharing annotated antibody and T cell receptor data.
- Rubelt et al. Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire Community recommendations for sharing immune-repertoire sequencing data (Nature Immunology, 2017, 18(12):1274-1278) reports the Community’s recommendations for a minimal set of metadata that should be used to describe an AIRR-seq data set when published or when deposited in a AIRR-compliant repository.
- Breden et al. Reproducibility and Reuse of Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire Data (Frontiers in Immunology, 2017) introduced the goals of the AIRR Community Initiative and urged researchers to join our efforts.
