PMID: 29593723
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2018.00462

[…] and mice have the most well defined ig gene loci, but a map of all allelic variants is not complete (). there have been efforts to address this with algorithms—such as tigger (), igdiscover (), impre (), and a more recent allele prediction and validation tool ()—that can be used to identify germline alleles for individual repertoires. proper identification of non-template additions […]

[…] such as pear (). separate analysis of heavy and light chains may be required for antibody formats such as scfv, where the presence of synthetic linkers can complicate analyses., programs such as impre (), igblast (), imgt/high v-quest (, ), and immundiversity (), which were originally developed for the analysis of b and t cell receptor repertoires, identify vh and vl germlines as well as vh […]

[…] 912 cm−1 peak splits into two peaks at 843 and 865 cm−1. the spectrum of flexi also looks similar to both above, but closer to impri, with no above peak shoulder and splitting., for the spectrum of impre, the highest peak appears at ~1105 cm−1, which is the c–o stretching typical of ether c–o–c linkage in the 1000–1300 cm−1 range []. the second highest peak is at 2853 cm−1, due to the ch […]

[…] we tried several models implemented in dadi and chose the model with the least number of parameters that was appropriate for our data; the isolation-with-migration model with population size change (impre). in this model, an ancestral population of size na undergoes an instantaneous size change to size nb at time tb. then at time ts it splits in two with size s × nb and (1 − s) × nb (where […]
