Understanding the immune repertoire with RNA-seq

Accurate characterization of the TCR and BCR repertoires is key to understanding adaptive immune responses. The adaptive immune system is composed of T and B lymphocytes that bind antigens via highly specific TCRs and B-cell receptors (BCRs) on their cell surfaces. Extensive sequence diversity of TCRs and BCRs allows recognition of nearly an infinite number of potential antigens.

NGS can provide an unprecedented, high-resolution picture of the immune repertoire, but many current sequencing methods can introduce substantial amplification bias. In this webinar, we explore a new T-cell receptor sequencing protocol and how a complete workflow including UMIs and UMI-enabled software helps increase the overall confidence in the final data analysis.

Streamline PCR workflows and get reliable results

PCR has revolutionized molecular biology, but today’s applications demand more from this technology. A need for increased throughput, higher sensitivity and reliable data analysis can complicate PCR experiments. QIAGEN has introduced the new AllTaq PCR Kits to improve efficiency and provide improvements to the PCR workflow, including pipetting controls, versatile chemistry for GC-rich or long targets and Guard-protected, hot-start chemistry.

Discover how to streamline your PCR workflow in this upcoming webinar!
