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.
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.
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.
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.
