ready Minimum Information About a Bioinformatics investigation

Abbreviation: MIABi

General Information
The Minimum Information about a Bioinformatics investigation (MIABi) initiative specifies, through a series of documentation modules, the minimum information that should be provided for a bioinformatics investigation. The MIABi initiative arises from a response to the growing need for transparency, provenance and scientific reproducibility amongst the bioinformatics and computational biology community.

Immunology Database and Analysis Portal
The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort) data repository was created for the exploration of clinical and basic research data on immunology and associated findings. ImmPort intends to promote effective data sharing across the basic, clinical and translational research communities. It collects data both from clinical and mechanistic studies on human subjects and from immunology studies on model organisms. The ImmPort ecosystem consists of four components: private data, shared data, data analysis, and resources-for data archiving, dissemination, analyses, and reuse.
