The GSC is launching an open-access online journal to support its mission. The “Standards in Genomic Sciences” (SIGS) journal will provide a forum for publishing genome and metagenome notes structured according to the GSC’s MIGS/MIMS specification. It will also support the community by providing a venue for the publication of a wide range of articles that are standards-compliant and standards supportive. For example, this will include the publication of Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) such as those describing the annotation pipelines of the major sequencing centres. Submissions on a range of topics now welcomed. For more information, please see the links below.
