HIV molecular immunology database
The HIV Molecular Immunology Database is an annotated, searchable collection of HIV-1 cytotoxic and helper T-cell epitopes and antibody binding sites.
A new immunology tool, Neutralization Index, computes a tier-like score for HIV-1 neutralizing antibodies or sera, allowing for comparisons of neutralization potency. The tool converts antibody or serum neutralization data to a tiered scale, similar to the virus tiers in common use. The description of the tool was published by Hraber et al. 2018. 17 July 2018
Database User Workshop 2018
The Immune Epitope Database (IEDB) will hold its 2018 User Workshop on October 22-23, 2018 in La Jolla, California. Staff from the LANL HIV Databases will be there to talk about our Immunology and Sequence Databases, and bioinformatics tools. Limited funds for travel expenses are available. For details, visit http://workshop.iedb.org/. 24 May 2018
New CATNAP options
The CATNAP (Compile, Analyze and Tally Neutralizing Antibody Panels) suite now provides a Find Names tool that converts HIV-1 antibody and virus aliases to the standard names used in CATNAP. Together with this, the CATNAP tool now allows you to paste or upload "Your list" of antibodies or viruses for analysis. 18 May 2018
