Convergent selection in antibody repertoires is revealed by deep learning

Adaptive immunity is driven by the ability of lymphocytes to undergo V(D)J recombination and generate a highly diverse set of immune receptors (B cell receptors/secreted antibodies and T cell receptors) and their subsequent clonal selection and expansion upon molecular recognition of foreign antigens. These principles lead to remarkable, unique and dynamic immune receptor repertoires. Deep…

Antibody Complementarity Determining Region Design Using High-Capacity Machine Learning

The precise targeting of antibodies and other protein therapeutics is required for their proper function and the elimination of deleterious off-target effects. Often the molecular structure of a therapeutic target is unknown and randomized methods are used to design antibodies without a model that relates antibody sequence to desired properties. Here we present a machine…
