Assay Standards & Data Ecosystem

The Assay Standards & Data Ecosystem working group's mandate is to define: assays required for a reference epigenome, standardized protocols and quality control (QC) metrics, and standardized analysis pipelines. Moreover, the group coordinates among IHEC members to define methods and standards for the sharing of raw and processed data.
