Immune Epitope Database User Workshop
October 22 - 23, 2018

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:    Monday, Oct. 22 – Tuesday, Oct. 23, 2018

 

Place:  La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology
