The study was published this week in Science Advances. Using a new prediction algorithm, called DORGE (Discovery of Oncogenes […]

New study could help scientists more effectively use T-cell technologies to better understand immune responses

A comparison of two key research tools used by immunologists to study different types of T-cell receptor signals has identified important features of existing technologies that could allow scientists to better understand immune responses, in a new study led by scientists at the University of Birmingham. T cells form a […]
