The first step in identifying a data set of interest is to find a paper that is related to your research interests. In the iReceptor Public Archive, we have been focusing on Cancer related AIRR-seq data sets, but other data is available. Currently, the iReceptor Team only works with B-cell receptor and T-cell receptor data sets.
Possible mechanisms for finding papers of interest are:
- Refer to the top journals (Nature, Frontiers in Immunology, etc.) OR
- Utilize google-scholar to find immune repertoire research that suits your interests
- A useful resource that contains a list of papers with public AIRR-seq data is available online through https://b-t.cr under “Publicly available AIRR-seq data sets”
