An hour-long, online discussion by prominent researchers involved in the iReceptor Plus project was observed and heard by researchers around the world on February 10, 2022.
TCR and BCR repertoires, or adaptive immune receptor repertoires (AIRRs), are the front line of adaptive immunity. AIRR-seq is becoming a common tool to study immune system dynamics.
A new study on single-cells sequencing of B-cells from COVID-19 patients – led by Dr. Natalia Freund in collaboration with the iR+ Project – has been published in PLoS Pathogens.
A meeting focusing on Chinese researchers’ use of AIRR-seq data to study the adaptive immune response, especially in COVID-19 patients, was held recently by the AIRR Community and Tsinghua University.
The international iReceptor Plus project was presented at the Antibody Engineering and Therapeutics meeting, which took place in San Diego in December.
The iReceptor Plus Project will hold a joint meeting with the SCAIR community in Haifa, Israel as part of the project’s efforts to expand the iReceptor Plus stakeholders community.
The iReceptor Plus Project was well represented by several consortium members at The International Union of Immunological Societies (IUIS) 2019 in Beijing, China.
