ready VDJdb: a curated database of T-cell receptors with known antigen specificity


General Information
The primary goal of VDJdb is to facilitate access to existing information on T-cell receptor antigen specificities, i.e. the ability to recognize certain epitopes in certain MHC contexts. Our mission is to both aggregate the scarce TCR specificity information available so far and to create a curated repository to store such data. In addition to routine database updates providing the most up-to-date information, we make our best to ensure data consistency and fight irregularities in TCR specificity reporting with a complex database validation scheme.
