Extending MIGS/MIMS to the Description of Ribosomal RNA Sequences

submitted by: dougramsey
With the MIGS/MIMS specifications the Genomic Standards Consortium has finished the groundwork to enrich our genome and metagenome collections with contextual data. Now, it is time to consider whether these standards could be applied ‘as is’ in the short-term, and ‘with modification/extension’ in the longer-term to any genetic marker sequence retrieved from the environment. To move for ward and leverage existing interest in the community the proposal for MIENS, the ‘Minimum...
