The Minimum Information about a Biosynthetic Gene cluster (MIBiG) specification provides a robust community standard for annotations and metadata on biosynthetic gene clusters and their molecular products. MIBiG will facilitate the standardized deposition and retrieval of biosynthetic gene cluster data as well as the development of comprehensive comparative analysis tools. It will empower next-generation research on the biosynthesis, chemistry and ecology of broad classes of societally relevant bioactive secondary metabolites, guided by robust experimental evidence and rich metadata components.
