The iReceptor Technical Team attended the CANARIE Research Software Engineering Conference and presented on the team's experience in developing software as part of the International Adaptive Immune Response Rerpertoire (AIRR) Community. Pictured is Brian Corrie giving the presentation, the presentation is available on line.
The iReceptor team participated in SFU's BCTech Research Showcase at this year's BCTech annual event. Pictured is Brian Corrie presenting iReceptor to SFU President Andrew Petter and SFU Vice President Research Joy Johnson.
The Minimal Standards Working Group, and indeed, the entire AIRR Community, has published a set of recommendations for the Minimal Information required for sharing of Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire (MiAIRR) Data in Nature Immunology - with iReceptor team members Marthandan, Corrie, Scott, and Breden contributors to the paper - https://www.nature.com/articles/ni.3873
The AIRR Community has published a perspective article explaining the importance of "Reproducibility and Reuse of Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire Data" and the goals of the AIRR Community in the Frontiers of Immunology with iReceptor's Felix Breden and Jamie Scott as principal authors - https://doi.org/10.3389/fimmu.2017.01418

The B.C. government, through the BC Knowledge Development Fund (BCKDF), has awarded Simon Fraser University $525,000 to support the iReceptor Data Integration System in early disease detection and action. Total investment in this phase of the project is $1.3 million, including matching funds from the Canada Foundation for Innovation as well as Simon Fraser University. Led by SFU professors, Dr. Felix Breden, Department of Biology, and Dr.
The CANARIE funded iReceptor extension to link the VDJServer (vdjserver.org) public repository as a remote data repository in iReceptor has been completed! VDJServer is a large, public, immune genetics data repositories, developed by Lindsay Cowell and her team at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. The iReceptor team has worked closely with the VDJServer team to make this happen - thanks Lindsay and John!
