Research entitled “Mining adaptive immune receptor repertoires for biological and clinical information using machine learning” has been published in the journal Current Opinion in Systems Biology by three iR+ partners.
Associate Prof. Encarnita Mariotti-Ferrandiz of Sorbonne University has headed an 18-member research team that recently published an important paper on benchmarking TCRseq methods in Nature Biotechnology.
The AIRR COVID-19 repository offers some 750 million receptor sequences from 17 studies of COVID-19 patients which are stored and are accessible through the iReceptor Gateway.
The AIRR Community of The Antibody Society held a special event focused on AIRR-sequencing data and COVID-19.
Prof. Felix Breden discussed the challenge of the new coronavirus pandemic and how AIRR sequencing data is offered by the consortium to help find a solution.
Three independent experts, highly-experienced in the ethical aspects of genetic data sharing, have been named members of the new ethics advisory board of the iReceptor Plus Project.
Nine early career scientists will give five-minute scientific lightning talks and four technical brainstorming sessions will discuss the latest cyberinfrastructure approaches to sharing genomic data.
iReceptor Plus team members Brian Corrie, Laura Gutierrez Funderburk and Felix Breden led the hackathon team, working on a project called the AIRR Adaptive Adapter.
Two new Chinese studies have used immune profiling platform developed by iReceptor Plus' partner 10X Genomics, to examine the immune systems of COVID-19 patients at the level of single cells.
