Data Submission and Query

Data Submission Guides for AIRR-seq studies

There are multiple data repositories that accept submission of AIRR-seq datasets. Each provides different capabilities but all comply with the MiAIRR standard.

National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI)

VDJServer Community Data Portal

Data Submission for Inferred Genes and Alleles

In 2017, The AIRR Community established the Inferred Allele Review Committee (IARC) to evaluate inferred alleles for inclusion in relevant germline databases. IARC has worked, together with colleagues at IMGT and the US National Institutes of Health, to establish a systematic submission and review process. OGRDB was created and designed to support that process, and provide a real-time record of affirmed sequences.

Data Query and Download

Submission of AIRR-seq datasets to public data repositories means that other researchers can query, download and reuse that data for novel analyses.

AIRR Data Commons

These data repositories all implement the AIRR Data Commons (ADC) API programmatic access to query and download AIRR-seq data.

  • iReceptor Public Archive
  • VDJServer Community Data Portal

Other Public Data Repositories

There are additional data repositories that provide access to AIRR-seq data but which did not implement the ADC API for programmatic access. Information about some of these repositories are provided in a B-T.CR forum post.
