In collaboration with the AIRR Community, we are pleased to announce the first COVID-19 AIRR-seq study available for searching and download through the iReceptor Gateway. 8.9 Million annotated sequences from the paper B cell clonal expansion and convergent antibody responses to SARS-CoV-2 from Nielsen, et al. has been loaded into the AIRR COVID-19 repository. We expect a number of other papers to be added to this repository in the near future.
The iReceptor Gateway and the iReceptor Public Archive (IPA1 through IPA5) will be down for maintenance and a software upgrade from 11:00 - 15:00 Pacific time, June 4th.
Sorry for the inconvenience...
Members of the iReceptor team are hacking throughout the weekend on a project called “Adaptive ImmunoSeq Repository as part of the ./hackseq-rna virtual COVID-19 Ultra Hackathon. Microsoft and Adaptive Biotechnologies are exploring how the immune system responds to COVID-19 and the 3 day goal is to develop a tool to query the Adaptive ImmunoSeq repository (using their WebAPIs), download data, and convert it to the standard AIRR-seq data formats for Repertoires and Rearrangements.
The iReceptor Gateway and repositories experienced a short outage due to networking problems on our service provider Compute Canada. All services were down from 12:16 - 14:57 Pacific time on 2020/05/07. All systems and services are back on line.
Below you will find up to date user statistics from 2019, including a graph that shows the distribution of users (by EMail domain) as well as the steady growth of new users on the iReceptor Platform since it first came into operation in 2014. Note the users added in 2020 represent users in January only.
