MITI minimum information guidelines for highly multiplexed tissue images

Nat Methods. 2022 Mar;19(3):262-267. doi: 10.1038/s41592-022-01415-4.


The imminent release of tissue atlases combining multi-channel microscopy with single cell sequencing and other omics data from normal and diseased specimens creates an urgent need for data and metadata standards that guide data deposition, curation and release. We describe a Minimum Information about highly multiplexed Tissue Imaging (MITI) standard that applies best practices developed for genomics and other microscopy data to highly multiplexed tissue images and traditional histology.
