  • NGS-Ig data

    Dear users,

    I'd like to ask you for your advise on a certain project that I am working on.

    My job is to retrospectively analyse NGS data from patients suffering from ALL and MM (IGH).
    However, I am not a bioinformatician. I just received the sequencing data in Excel (and .csv) files and I'm supposed to analyse these data.

    Of course, I've heard of IMGT/VQUEST and IgBlast and it is no problem for me to work with these programmes. But the issue is that I can't do this with tens of thousands of sequences.

    After further research, I came across the R tool tcR. It seems to be a well-done programme. Unfortunately, I always receive error messages when trying to integrate my files in it.

    I found out that it might be useful to convert my files into .txt files or to work with VDJ-tools, Immunoseq, mixcr or other tools. But I do not have access to these programmes or they require Linux (which I don't have; Windows).

    In addition, the sequencing data in my Excel files are not in fasta-format. But if I would change this by editing the sequences manually I'd be busy for the next three months.

    My goal is to analyse my data for gene usage and to be able to search quickly for potential subclones.


    I look forward to hearing your opinion!
    Thanks in advance!

    You can probably use the sequences from the CSV files to create fasta files with a bit of creativity.

    Have a look at good text editors like Notepad++ to get this done.

    Also check out Galaxy for user friendly processing tools.

      The Impact of AI in Genomic Medicine
      by seqadmin



      Artificial intelligence (AI) has evolved from a futuristic vision to a mainstream technology, highlighted by the introduction of tools like OpenAI's ChatGPT and Google's Gemini. In recent years, AI has become increasingly integrated into the field of genomics. This integration has enabled new scientific discoveries while simultaneously raising important ethical questions1. Interviews with two researchers at the center of this intersection provide insightful perspectives into...

      Multiomics Techniques Advancing Disease Research
      by seqadmin


      New and advanced multiomics tools and technologies have opened new avenues of research and markedly enhanced various disciplines such as disease research and precision medicine1. The practice of merging diverse data from various ‘omes increasingly provides a more holistic understanding of biological systems. As Maddison Masaeli, Co-Founder and CEO at Deepcell, aptly noted, “You can't explain biology in its complex form with one modality.”

      A major leap in the field has
