ready ImMunoGeneTics Ontology

Abbreviation: IMGT

General Information
IMGT-ONTOLOGY provides a specific vocabulary of the terminology to be used in immunogenetics and immunoinformatics. The ontology allows for the standardization for immunogenetics data from genome, proteome, genetics, two-dimensional and three-dimensional structures.

ImMunoGeneTics Information System
IMGT is a high-quality integrated knowledge resource specialized in the immunoglobulins (IG) or antibodies, T cell receptors (TR), major histocompatibility complex (MHC) of human and other vertebrate species, and in the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF), major histocompatibility complex superfamily (MhcSF) and related proteins of the immune system (RPI) of vertebrates and invertebrates.
