The Immunogenomics Data-Analysis Working Group : Project Communications


Congratulations to Derek Middleton on receiving the Distinguished Scientist Award at this year's American Society of Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics meeting!

Congratulations to Steven Mack who will be starting as the new Editor-In-Chief of Human Immunology in 2014!

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.

MIRING (Minimum Information for Reporting Immunogenomic NGS Genotyping), a draft MIBBI standard for reporting NGS genotype data for immunogenomic loci was presented at the Immunogenomic Next Generation Sequencing Data Consortium meeting on November 17, prior to the ASHI meeting.

The paper describing the Genotype List (GL) String format for lossless reporting of allele and genotype ambiguity for HLA and KIR genotyping data was published in Tissue Antigens. The GL String format is used by the GL Service for registering and returning HLA genotype data.

The IDAWG Survey of Immunogenetic Data Management and Analysis Methods is now closed. We thank everyone who completed the survey for their input and participation in this project.

Congratulations to Pierre-Antoine Gourraud on receiving the 2012 Julia Bodmer Award at this year's European Federation for Immunogenetics meeting!
