We are happy to announce the results of several years worth of standards setting work with our colleagues in the AIRR Community, resulting in the release of the AIRR Community Standard v1.4, including v1.2 of the AIRR Data Commons API (ADC API) to query AIRR compliant data repositories (see the AIRR Community v1.4 new release).
All services back online! Due to networking issues the iReceptor Gateway was unavailable from 09:30 - 11:00 Pacific time, apologies for the inconvenience.
iReceptor Gateway user queries for Junction/CDR3 AA sequences in the AIRR Data Commons are now complemented with an additional search to IEDB to look for known antigen or epitope specificity. Organism found on IEDB with specificity are listed and the user is given a link to IEDB to find out more.
Check it out!
Excited to announce a sixth international repository in the AIRR Community AIRR Data Commons (ADC), now searchable through the iReceptor Gateway. Excited to collaborate with the Scheepers group at the HIV & SARS-CoV-2 Virology Section, National Institute for Communicable Diseases (NICD) in South Africa.
The iReceptor team recently presented at the Global COVID Lab Meeting of the Human Vaccines Project. "Antibody/B-cell and T-cell receptor sequences in the AIRR Data Commons promotes rapid response to COVID-19" was the topic of the day and the conversation following the excellent presentation was both thoughtful and thought-provoking. The presentation and discussion were recorded and can be found
We are pleased to announce a new AIRR-seq study available for searching and download in the AIRR Data Commons and through the iReceptor Gateway. 3.1M annotated sequences from Alameh et al. Lipid nanoparticles enhance the efficacy of mRNA and protein subunit vaccines by inducing robust T follicular helper cell and humoral responses are now available through the iReceptor Gateway.
Due to a networking issue at the Texas Advanced Computing Centre (TACC) authentication of users on the iReceptor Gateway was not working from 15:00 PST to 16:00 PST. All services are now back online.
Interested in a list of relevant publications that have cited iReceptor and the AIRR Data Commons as a platform for sharing COVID-19 AIRR-seq data, check out this twitter thread by iReceptor Technical Director Brian Corrie describing the history of COVID-19 data sharing through third party publications and citations!
