We have provided a variety of resources to analyze our data and enhance your IEDB experience:



Please preview our new alpha version of the IEDB site here.
If attending the 2014 AAI Annual meeting, please visit the IEDB exhibit booth (#432).

The IEDB contains data related to antibody and T cell epitopes for humans, non-human primates, rodents, and other animal species. Curation of peptidic and non-peptidic epitope data relating to all infectious diseases (including NIAID Category A, B, and C priority pathogens and NIAID Emerging and Re-emerging infectious diseases), allergens, autoimmune diseases, and transplant/alloantigens is current and constantly being updated.  More...

The database also contains MHC binding data from a variety of different antigenic sources and immune epitope data from the FIMM (Brusic), HLA Ligand (Hildebrand), TopBank (Sette), and MHC binding (Buus) databases. These databases and their investigators are hereby acknowledged as major contributors to the IEDB.

For more information about our curation procedures and priorities, please refer to our Curation Manual.
