Specialized Immunology databases

Immunology databases provide more detailed information on immunologically relevant molecules, systems and processes. They are typically annotated by experts and contain immunology-specific annotations.

Kabat database (kabatdatabase.com) contains entries of proteins of immunological interest: Ig, T cell receptors (TCR), major histocompatibility complex (MHC) molecules and other immunological proteins.

The IMGT databases (imgt.cines.fr) contain highquality annotations of DNA and protein sequences of Ig, TCR and MHC. They also contain IMGT-related genomic and structural data.

The FIMM database (sdmc.lit.org.sg/fimm) focuses on protein antigens, MHC molecules and structures, MHC-associated peptides and relevant disease associations.

The SYFPEITHI database (syfpeithi.bmi-heidelberg.com) contains entries of MHC ligands and peptide motifs.

The HIV molecular immunology database (http://www.hiv.lanl.gov/content/immunology/index.html) is an annotated searchable repository of HIV1 T cell and B cell epitopes.
