A label is a term used to describe any part of an object or a process.

IMGT standardized labels are used to describe all structural and functional subregions that compose IG, TR, MH and RPI sequences, 2D and 3D structures. The IMGT labels are written in capital letters.

Each label corresponds to a concept of the key DESCRIPTION concept of IMGT-ONTOLOGY.
