Scaligner: Archive antibody sequences in an in-house repository

Scaligner: Archive antibody sequences in an in-house repository

Scaligner is not only a sequences alignment and analyzing tool but also Scaligner gives to researchers the ability to keep sequences in a long-term secure database. Scaligner : organizing sequences in lists to preserve the project’s history and to provide a comprehensive review of your data. Sequences can be exported and annotated to Excel or […]

Scaligner: Antibody sequence analysis, load, align, search and sort

Scaligner: Antibody sequence analysis, load, align, search and sort

Scaligner is a complete system for antibody sequence analysis, alignment and archival. Sequences are imported from FASTA files, aligned automatically onto a list of potential scaffolds (eg, germline or protein scaffold) to identify the closest match. The loading process pairs light and heavy chains and assigns positional numbers to amino-acids. Scaligner can upload thousands of […]

Scaligner: Antibody numbering using KABAT and IMGT schemes

Scaligner: Antibody numbering using KABAT and IMGT schemes

The new phage display technologies have revolutionized the antibody field by allowing the creation of libraries containing antibody fragments as scFv, Fab or nanobodies. The microbial expression systems enable easy and cheap production of specific antibody fragments and efficient protein engineering. But, the use of antibodies or fragments as therapeutics requires optimizing several of their […]

How to maximize the reproducibility of your research?

How to maximize the reproducibility of your research?

Enhancing the reproducibility of results has become a topic of many conversations within the scientific community. There is a growing alarm about results that cannot be reproduced due to the complexity of experiments or to the pressure on researchers. Reproducibility is not only a moral responsibility with respect to the scientific field, but a lack […]

The Benefits Of Streamlining Data Centralization

The Benefits Of Streamlining Data Centralization

Posted by Stephen Jeske extract from Data Science Central So let’s say you have a business that has quite some people constantly accessing the company’s data. Furthermore, your company has multiple locations; perhaps branch or satellite offices and the people at those remote locations also need that data. That’s a lot of fingers in the […]
