New tool for defining your antibody-encoding genes

– Published 12 February 2024

The antibody team within the Dept. of Immunotechnology, together with an international team of the Adaptive Immune Receptor Repertoire (AIRR) Community, today published a study that allows you to, through use of an improved human immunoglobulin reference set, better define your antibody-encoding genes. This tools will allow you to properly detect unique molecular features associated to antibody responses. The paper describing the reference set was published in Frontiers in Immunology and the reference sets are available from the Open Germline Receptor Database (OGRDB). If you use the online version of IgBLAST ( to annotate your antibody-encoding gene sequences, you can likewise select the AIRR-C Reference Set on-line to get the same high quality data output!
