One Sentence Summary: An open online resource of human immunology data from more than 10,000 normal subjects including interactive data visualization and download enables a new look at immune system differences across age and sex, rapid hypothesis generation, and creation of custom control cohorts. Abstract: New immunological assays now enable rich measurements of human immune function, but difficulty attaining enough measurements across sufficiently large and diverse cohorts has hindered

Here we present the 10,000 Immunomes Project (10KIP), a diverse human immunology reference derived from over 44,000 individuals across 242 studies from ImmPort, a publicly available resource of raw immunology study data and protocols. We carefully curated datasets, aggregating subjects from healthy/control arms and harmonizing data across studies. We demonstrate 10KIP's utility by .

Subject-level data is available for interactive visualization and download at We believe 10KIP can serve as a common control cohort and will accelerate hypothesis generation by clinical and basic immunologists across diverse populations.
