SHERPA™: Systematic HLA Epitope Ranking Pan Algorithm

HLA binding is currently the most well-established criteria for ranking neoantigen candidates. Recent advances in training data generated from mass spectrometry provide a larger dataset of peptide binders and non-binders for individual HLA alleles. This new binding data takes two important additional components into consideration: cleavage and transportation, which are critically important for presentation assessment. [...]

Neoantigen Discovery

NeoantigenID Technologies for neoantigen discovery are critical for the development of personalized cancer therapies and neoantigen-based biomarkers. Precision neoantigen discovery entails comprehensive detection of tumor-specific genomic variants and accurate prediction of MHC presentation of epitopes originating from such variants. Our ImmunoID NeXT Platform® enables a comprehensive survey of putative neoantigens by combining highly sensitive exome- [...]

Whole Genome Sequencing

In recent years, the declining cost of NGS has resulted in the increased use of broad genomic characterization approaches, including whole genome sequencing (WGS), for various research applications. This cost reduction has coincided with researchers’ need for more comprehensive molecular information in the disease areas of cardiology, endocrinology, rare disease, autoimmunity, and ever-increasingly, cancer. WGS [...]

miRNA Sequencing

Micro RNAs (miRNAs) are a small non-coding type of RNA molecule (18-40 nucleotides in length) that play a functional role in the regulation of RNA silencing and post-transcriptional gene expression. miRNA-Seq enables the investigation of the function of small RNAs and the evaluation of regulatory networks of miRNAs and their target genes. Technical Details Sequencing [...]

Transcriptome Sequencing

ACE Research Transcriptome The same accuracy and coverage enhancements of the ACE Research Exome (see above) are also incorporated into RNA analysis using our unique ACE Research Transcriptome enrichment protocol. Many clinical studies depend on tissue archives that have been fixed using formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) procedures. This preservation process makes it difficult to obtain a [...]
