About the Webinar
B and T cells are major players of an adaptive immune system that protects organisms against pathogenic hazards. B and T cell receptor repertoires are highly diverse due to V(D)J rearrangement and somatic mutations. This diversity enables recognition of a wide range of antigens. High-throughput sequencing empowers B and T cell receptor repertoire profiling, which provides insights into the adaptive immune response in healthy individuals and in those with a wide range of diseases.
