IDAWG IHIW PROJECT: Immunogenomic Data Management MethodsThe goal of this project is to develop data-management tools, STREIS reporting guidelines, and data documentation standards that are tailored to work with the HLA and KIR data-management practices in use by the immunogenetics community.
The was project was originally part of the 16th International Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics Workshop (IHIW) that was held in Liverpool on May 28-30, 2012. It continues as part of the 17th IHIW, which will be held in Northern California in 2016.
The 16th IHIW Immunogenomic Data-Management Methods project met on May 30th 2012 in Hall 4a of the BT Convention Centre. A morning session was held from 0830-1230, and an afternoon session was held from 1600-1800.
The report for this 16th IHIW project was published in the February 2013 issue of the International Journal of Immunogenetics.

16 IHIW Project Phase One: Surveys of current HLA and KIR data-management practices
February 2013: PROJECT STATUS
These datasets consist of ambigous HLA-DRB1 and DQB1 genotyping results for 400 individuals, 200 African Americans, and 200 European Americans. Within each group, 100 samples have been typed using SSOP methods, and 100 using SBT methods.
Outcomes of this exercise in comparative ambiguity resolution are summarized in the 16th IHIW Project Report.
The IDAWG 16th IHIW Survey of Immunogenetic Data management and Analysis Methods has been developed and made available with the generous support of the as American Society for Histocompatibility and Immunogenetics (ASHI), and we thank ASHI for their support of this project.
Please send questions or comments about the survey to survey[at sign]immunogenomics[dot]org.
