CANARIE Awards Funding to iReceptor

CANARIE, a vital component of Canada’s digital infrastructure supporting research, education and innovation, today announced 20 successful recipients of its Research Software funding call, announced in late 2017. This funding will enable research teams in applied sciences and the humanities to adapt their existing research platforms for re-use by other research teams, including those working in different disciplines. As a result, new research teams from across Canada will be able to re-use previously funded and developed software to accelerate discovery.

iReceptor was one of the recipients:

"[iReceptor is a] distributed data management system and research platform for mining sequence data from immune responses. The purpose of this system is to improve the design of vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and cancer immunotherapies by creating an international data commons of antibody and T-cell receptor genes sequences. Software Evolution: iReceptor will integrate two new, large-scale data repositories into its data commons."
