iReceptor has two primary workflows: the Metadata Search and the Sequence Search. The Metadata Search workflow is for research questions about sequences' metadata, e.g. what type of study they are from, what type of cell they are from, if the subject they were taken from was healthy or not. The Sequence Search Workflow is for research questions about sequences themselves, e.g. Junction AA length or V-gene alleles. Here are two use case scenarios where different research questions necessitate different workflows.
