Help with Common Queries
Below is a list of common queries (CQ) organized by subject. These queries have been designed to parallel the IEDB meta-analysis efforts. Meta-analyses are performed at intervals to query the database for all data relating to subjects of interest (ex. Influenza, Malaria, Tuberculosis). The queries below represent a simplified version of such analysis. Click on the button (+) next to each query for step-by-step instructions on how to find the answer. To get the most out of this tutorial, we suggest that you view this window side by side with the IEDB website. Should you have any questions or feedback, please visit our support forum. Data generated through use of the tutorial can be downloaded for further analysis using Excel. When available, the option to download data appears in the upper left-hand side of the page (Excel icon). Tools for performing specific analyses are also available through the Analysis Resource on the IEDB website. These include B (linear and structural) and T cell (class I and class II) Epitope Prediction, Population Coverage, Homology Mapping, Epitope Conservancy Analysis, as well as Epitope Cluster Analysis, and can be found at the top of the page under 'Tools.'
The IEDB provides user further support which can be found on the main menu along the top of the IEDB Home page under 'Support.' Additional tutorials and help can be accessed through the IEDB Zen desk.
