Welcome to the Massive Analysis and QC (MAQC) Society
Society Goals and Objectives
The objective of the MAQC Society is to communicate, promote, and advance reproducible science principles and quality control for analysis of the massive data generated from the existing and emerging technologies in solving biological, health, and medical problems. Thus, the goals of the Society are to (1) advocate and facilitate the development and application of quality control practice and standard analysis protocols of bioinformatics and biostatistics for enhanced reproducibility across multiple experiments, laboratories, and data analysis methods, and (2) advance our understanding and best practices in the analysis of massive data from emerging technologies applied in drug development, clinical application, and safety/risk assessment.Follow @maqcsociety

History of MicroArray Quality Control (MAQC) Project
It is an FDA‐led community wide consortium effort to address issues relating to the application of constantly evolving high‐throughput genomics technologies to either assess safety and efficacy of FDA regulated products or their safe and effective use in clinical applications as in vitro diagnostic devices. The MAQC consortium completed three projects between 2005 ‐2014 (namely MAQC I, II and III), resulting in ~30 publications and one third of which were published in Nature Biotechnology. Furthermore, two of these papers were among the most cited in Nature Biotechnology in the last 20 years. More information about MAQC is available here.
