Standardising the Description of 16S Sequences with MIGS/MIMS

At the 5th Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) workshop held at the EBI on 12-14th December 2007, discussions led to a proposal to standardise the description of 16S sequences using the GSC community-led standard called Minimum Information about a Genome Sequence/ Metagenome Sample (MIGS/MIMS).

MIGS/MIMS defines descriptors that can assist in the capture of a rich set of information about 16S sequences using a community-led standard.

Further information is available on the GSC wiki:
