Abstract

The Immune Epitope Database (IEDB), an online resource available at http://immuneepitope.org/, contains data on T cell and B cells epitopes of multiple pathogens, including M. tuberculosis. A workshop held in June, 2007 reviewed the existing database, discussed the utility of reference sets of epitopes, and identified knowledge gaps pertaining to epitopes and immune responses in tuberculosis.
