Martin Corcoran is a senior research specialist at the group of Gunilla Karlsson Hedestam at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. He specializes in the development of NGS based methodology and bioinformatic tools, the best known of which is the inference program IgDiscover, used for the study of genetic variation in the adaptive immune receptor loci in humans and other species.
Ayelet Peres is a PhD student with Prof. Gur Yaari at Bar Ilan University. She received her MSc (Cum Laude) from Bar Ilan University in computational immunology. In her studies, she explores genomic variations and develop bioinformatics tools for analysis of T and B cell receptor repertoires, and her projects revolve around the expressed repertoires and the connection to the genomic loci, such as genotype and haplotype inference.
Oscar Rodriguez is a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Corey Watson at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. He develops and applies computational approaches to study effects of germline genetic variation on adaptive immune receptor repertoires (AIRR) using long-read sequencing technologies and AIRR-seq data. He is the lead developer of the tool, IGenotyper, which provides the first consolidated tool suite for long-read based assembly and curation of genetic variation in the IG and TCR loci.
