Immune Epitope Database User Workshop
October 25 - 26, 2017

The 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 further analysis of immune epitopes.  The IEDB has data for infectious and autoimmune diseases, allergens, and alloantigens.

Who should attend?

  • Researchers studying T cell and antibody epitopes
  • Bioinformaticians
  • Those new to the IEDB
  • Those wanting to better understand and use the many features of the resource

Date:    Wednesday, Oct. 25 – Thursday, Oct. 26, 2017
