SMARTer ICELL8 scTCR Analyzer
The SMARTer ICELL8 scTCR Analyzer software is for use in conjunction with human TCR a/b profiling on the SMARTer ICELL8 systems. With identification information derived from the CellSelect imaging software of the SMARTer ICELL8 systems and FASTQ files generated by Illumina MiSeq®, the analyzer outputs per-well data in a two-step procedure. During its run, the analyzer:
- Aligns reads to reference V, D, J, and C gene segments of the T-cell receptor
- Assembles the aligned reads to extract the CDR3 gene region
- Generates a whole-chip clonotype summary report
- Applies quality control by filtering out clonotypes with relatively poor quality based on the readings from negative controls included on the chip
The analyzer reports filtering statistics, produces tables extracting the top three clonotypes, and generates files that can be used as input for data visualization, such as a VJ join chord diagram.
