Brian Corrie presented iReceptor in the Life Sciences stream of the 2018 Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing (PASC) conference in Basel, Switzerland. Like with the ISC Conference, there was a signficant focus on the Life Sciences and the use of Machine Learning in the Life Sciences, including a mini-symposium on "Computational Solutions to Large-Scale Data Management and Analysis Challenges in Personalized Health".
The first iReceptor paper has been published in Immunological Reviews. Entitled "iReceptor: A platform for querying and analyzing antibody/B‐cell and T‐cell receptor repertoire data across federated repositories" the paper discusses the need for such a system, the overall approach and architecture, as well as a number of use cases for the platform.
Brian Corrie presented iReceptor in the Research Poster Session at the European International Conference on High Performance Computing (ISC). There were a number of Life Sciences and Precision/Personalized Medicine sessions at the conference, with a significant focus on the use of Machine Learning in the Life Sciences. These included:
Jamie Scott and Felix Breden recently attended the Federation of Clinical Immunological Societies (FOCIS) meeting and represented the AIRR Community, The Antibody Society (TABS), and Dr. Breden presented on iReceptor in the TABS Symposium of FOCIS.
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
