Microsoft and Adaptive Biotechnologies Expand Their Collaboration for Mapping the Immune Response to COVID-19

Shots:

  • The companies collaborate on mapping the immune system’s response to threats, including the COVID-19 threat
  • The focus of the alliance is to study population-wide immune responses to the COVID-19 with their findings to be publicly available via an open data portal. Following the study of immune responses, the companies expected to provide unique insight for new therapies and diagnostics
  • In Apr’2020, Adaptive will begin collecting de-identified blood samples from people diagnosed with COVID-19. Utilizing Adaptive’s technology, researchers will sequence immune cell receptors from the samples and the finding will be analyzed by utilizing Microsoft’s ML and Azure Cloud platform
