The composition of the immune repertoire, consisting of the T cell and B cell receptors (TCR and BCR), is important for an organism’s adaptive immune system and plays a pivotal role in an individual’s overall health. Understanding the complex array of TCR and BCR allows for developing precision medicine and immunotherapy. Analyzing next-generation sequencing (NGS) data from RNA-seq experiments to characterize and understand TCR and BCR clonotypes may aid in identifying cases that could benefit from personalized immunotherapy or potentially predict therapeutic outcomes.
In this training, we’ll use QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench to analyze immune repertoire NGS data generated from RNA-seq or single-cell RNA-seq data. Together we’ll explore how to import, analyze and interpret your NGS data. Specifically, you’ll learn how to:
-Import NGS data into QIAGEN CLC Genomics Workbench
-Analyze the data using template workflows
-Interpret the results using the interactive graphics produced by the workflows
