VisTCR: An Interactive Software for T Cell Repertoire Sequencing Data Analysis.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Recent progress in high throughput sequencing technologies has provided an opportunity to probe T cell receptor (TCR) repertoire, bringing about an explosion of TCR sequencing data and analysis tools. For easier and more heuristic analysis TCR sequencing data, we developed a client-based HTML program (VisTCR). It has a data storage module and a data analysis module that integrate multiple cutting-edge analysis algorithms in a hierarchical fashion. Researchers can group and re-group samples for different analysis purposes by customized "Experiment Design File." Moreover, the VisTCR provides a user-friendly interactive interface, by all the TCR analysis methods and visualization results can be accessed and saved as tables or graphs in the process of analysis.
