We are in the final stages of preparing for VDJServer’s first release on May 1, 2014. This release will enable users to upload sequences, conduct quality control and preprocessing, infer germline rearrangements, and conduct basic repertoire summarization, such as analyzing gene segment usage and mutation frequencies.
Join us at our Exhibition Booth at AAI 2014 in Pittsburgh.
VDJServer is a free, publicly available, and open source resource providing a data management infrastructure and suite of interoperable analysis tools for antibody and antigen receptor sequencing data. VDJServer will support all steps in repertoire analysis from data management, to sequence processing and analysis, to repertoire characterization, to statistical comparisons and visualization. VDJServer is designed for use by biologists, clinicians, and bioinformatics researchers and will provide access via an intuitive web interface as well as API access for developers. In addition, source code and data will be available for download and local use.
VDJServer utilizes the high-performance computing facilities at the Texas Advanced Computing Center to enable otherwise computationally prohibitive research.
VDJServer is being developed by a team of researchers from the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, the Texas Advanced Computing Center, and the J. Craig Venter Institute with funding from the National Institutes of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (AI097403), and the Burroughs Welcome Fund.
