Explore with us the state-of-the-art in TCR-Epitope prediction. T-cells are at the heart of the immune system’s ability to distinguish between self and non-self, playing a critical role in both health and disease. Given the sheer scale of potential TCR-epitope interactions (stemming from both the enormous epitope and TCR repertoire diversity) experimental validation of each TCR interaction is not feasible. This has spurred the development of TCR-epitope prediction models that aim to narrow down the search for immunogenic epitopes, thereby streamlining research and reducing costs. Our webinar “Exploring TCR-Epitope Prediction Tools: Insights and Pitfalls” will delve into these predictive strategies, highlighting their importance in advancing immunological research and applications.
