The immunogenomics data analysis working group (IDAWG) is an international collaboration of histocompatibility and immunogenetics investigators who share the goal of facilitating the sharing of immunogenomic data (HLA, KIR, etc.) and fostering the consistent analysis and interpretation of those data by the immunogenomics community and the larger genomics communities.

The working group was formed in advance of the 16th International HLA and Immunogenetics Workshop (IHIW) and Conference with the intent to present its recommendations on topics of data-management and data-analysis at the 16th IHIW and Conference in 2012. IDAWG projects continue as part of the 17th IHIW to be held in 2017.

Congratulations to Dr. Derek Middleton, winner of the 2013 ASHI Distinguished Scientist Award!
Congratulations to Dr. Steven Mack, the new Editor-In-Chief of Human Immunology!

The IDAWG, the Immunogenomic Next Generation Sequencing Data Consortium, and the ASHI Scientific Affairs Committee have submitted a letter of comment on the Draft NIH Genomic Data Sharing Policy.
