HIV specific Fc effector function early in infection predicts the development of broadly neutralizing antibodies

PLoS Pathog
PMCID: 5908199
PMID: 29630668
DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006987

[…] equences from 10/13 bNAb and 7/10 no-bNAb individuals which were aligned using MUSCLE (MUltiple Sequence Comparison by Log- Expectation A script adapted from SONAR (Software for the Ontogenic aNalysis of Antibody Repertoires) [] was adapted to calculate the percentage nucleotide differences of autologous viruses compared to the antigen sequences (ConC gp12 […]


Gene Specific Substitution Profiles Describe the Types and Frequencies of Amino Acid Changes during Antibody Somatic Hypermutation

Front Immunol

[…] is not sampled uniformly and that the sampling bias is gene specific and similar among donors and over time. The software for constructing and analyzing GSSPs is available from GitHub as part of the SONAR suite (). […]


Historical changes of the Mediterranean Sea ecosystem: modelling the role and impact of primary productivity and fisheries changes over time

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5349533
PMID: 28290518
DOI: 10.1038/srep44491

[…] ated as the product of the number of fishing vessels, kW per vessel (inferred from their GT), and the number of days spent fishing. To account for improvements in technology (e.g., mobile phone, GPS, sonar, radio) that were not captured by kW as a measure of effort (), a conservative technological “creep factor” of 1% as observed by Damalas et al. and EVOMED was applied from 1980 to 1995 while for […]


Antibodyomics: bioinformatics technologies for understanding B‐cell immunity to HIV‐1

PMCID: 5516196
PMID: 28133812
DOI: 10.1111/imr.12480

[…] To add a temporal dimension to the analysis of B‐cell repertoires, we reimagined the Antibodyomics1 pipeline. Currently, the Software for Ontogenic aNalysis of Antibody Repertoires (SONAR; Antibodyomics2.1) provides a basis of Antibodyomics2. SONAR comprises a suite of tools for processing NGS data from B‐cell receptor libraries, including germline V(D)J gene annotation, lineage […]
