As previously discussed , immunoprofiling is the quantitative measurement of antigen receptors (ARs; antibodies or T-cell receptors) in a sample. Massively parallel (NextGen) DNA sequencing is a commonly used method for this purpose because receptor diversity can be quickly and cost-effectively measured with the added benefit that individual receptors can be quantified.

Biotechnology is the field of study that involves the practical use of biological processes in industrial production. The early applications of biotechnology gave rise to the making of beer, wine, and cheese. With advances in technology, vaccine development and insulin production were made possible through biotechnology. Advances in computing technology are transforming biotechnology in new ways.

In recent posts, I discussed container technology with an emphasis on Docker and Singularity . The motivation being that Digital World Biology is designing an immuno-bioinformatics class that will be taught at Shoreline Community College (Shoreline). This class will be part of Shoreline’s immuno-biotechnology certificate  that is currently under ... Read more
A lot of our colleagues are interested in bioinformatics and data science. While it is clear that bioinformatics is important, even essential, in modern biology research, there is the question about the levels of programming and computer skills needed for different jobs. I'm not going to answer that question here. Instead I'm going to focus on one end of the ... Read more
