The 10X BCR immune repertoire sequencing pipeline is a bioinformatics workflow for characterizing the sequences of B-cell receptors (BCRs) with single-cell resolution for libraries generated using 10x technology.
You get insights on the quality of your data, overview of the clonotype contents, somatic hypermutation rates, amino acid properties, gene usage, repertoire overlap and phylogenetic trees.
The workflow consists of two parts: pre- and postprocessing.
The pre-processing workflow processes the raw FASTQ sequence data using the 10x Chromium Cell Barcodes and unique molecular identifiers (UMIs) to assemble V(D)J transcripts per cell. Results are made available for download in the standardized AIRR-tsv format.
The post-processing workflow provides insights into the immune repertoire, for example, by determination of clonotypes or inference of phylogenetic trees. Moreover, single-cell resolution enables to take the pairing of heavy and light chains into account, allowing for the complete identification of antibodies. Interactive HTML reports containing a summary of the results and useful visualizations are made available for both the pre- and postprocessing workflows.
