Metadata Standards

The Metadata working group coordinates among IHEC members to enable integration of epigenomic profiling data.

We work to produce standards for metadata - data about data. The standards include both syntactic formats such as XML and JSON and definition of semantics using biological Ontologies. By standardizing the ways in which metadata about samples, experiments, and analysis results are recorded, the working group enables reuse of epigenomic profiling data for various purposes including integrative browsing, visualization, and computational analysis.
