Neutralization Index
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

HIV Sequence Compendium 2018
HIV Sequence Compendium 2018 is now available online. The 2018 Compendium is only available online in PDF format. 28 June 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.

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
