An HIV Database workshop presented by Los Alamos National Laboratory staff will be included as part of the IEDB User Workshop in October 2016 in San Diego, CA. For information and registration, see http://workshop.iedb.org.
New vaccine design tool: Epigraph
The Epigraph tool generates Epigraph sequences based on an input population of diverse sequences. Like Mosaic proteins, Epigraphs are artificial proteins that combine to maximize the potential epitope coverage (PTE) of a diverse population of protein sequences. Epigraph sequences can be used for either vaccine or reagent design. The basic input for the program is a diverse set of sequences that is representative of a viral population of interest. The output is a user specified number of artificial but intact sequences that, for a given number of sequences, will provide optimal epitope coverage. 01 September 2016
Immune Epitope Database User Workshop October 24 - 25, 2016
The Immune Epitope Database (IEDB) is an NIH-supported, freely available resource that provides access to published data related to antibody and T-cell epitopes, as well as online tools for prediction and analysis. An HIV Database workshop presented by Los Alamos National Laboratory staff will be included as part of the IEDB User Workshop in October 2016 in San Diego, California. For more information and registration, contact the IEDB at http://workshop.iedb.org. 31 August 2016
