A comprehensive profiling of T and B lymphocyte receptor repertoires from a Chinese origin rhesus macaque by high throughput sequencing

PLoS One
PMCID: 5559085
PMID: 28813462
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0182733

[…] d sequencing strategy with 100 bp length was adopted to capture the entire CDR3 of TCR and BCR using illumina hiseq 2000 platform. The sequencing raw data was processed using our self-developed tool, IMonitor []. Specifically, the IMonitor pipeline contains an error correction step to reduce the impact of the PCR and sequencing errors on the downstream analysis as much as possible []. In brief, th […]


Overview of methodologies for T cell receptor repertoire analysis

BMC Biotechnol
PMCID: 5504616
PMID: 28693542
DOI: 10.1186/s12896-017-0379-9

[…] ast years different tools and strategies have been developed for immune repertoire analysis, of which some have been summarized in previous reviews [, , –]. Other methods, such as IMSEQ [], TCRklass, iMonitor [], LymAnalyzer [] and RTRC [], have however emerged since. A popular tool is MiXCR (previously MiTCR), developed by Bolotin et al. [], which allows for a highly customizable analysis of both […]


3D: diversity, dynamics, differential testing – a proposed pipeline for analysis of next generation sequencing T cell repertoire data

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5327583
PMID: 28241742
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1544-9

[…] iReptor [] is a flexible toolkit for the processing and analysis of antigen receptor repertoire sequencing data at single-cell level by a relational database. Some of the tools, such as repgenHMM [], IMonitor [], IMEX/IMmunEXplorer [], Change-O [], ImmunediveRsity [], and VDJtools [] etc., could also measure repertoire diversity, but they only rely on one or two diversity indices, such as Shannon […]


Improving inflammatory arthritis management through tighter monitoring of patients and the use of innovative electronic tools

PMCID: 5133416
PMID: 27933206
DOI: 10.1136/rmdopen-2016-000302

[…] iMonitor is a web-based software application that allows patients to report information about their disease state for RA, PsA and AS. It can be accessed by PC, tablet or smartphone. Data are protected […]


Minimal Residual Disease Detection and Evolved IGH Clones Analysis in Acute B Lymphoblastic Leukemia Using IGH Deep Sequencing

Front Immunol
PMCID: 5048610
PMID: 27757113
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2016.00403

[…] Sequencing data were analyzed by the TCR and BCR repertoire analyzing pipeline IMonitor (). About 2–5 million mapped reads (include correct V and J genes) remained after the above pipeline for each sample, and we used a random subset of 2 million mapped reads for continued analy […]


Comparative Analysis of Immune Repertoires between Bactrian Camel's Conventional and Heavy Chain Antibodies

PLoS One
PMCID: 5010241
PMID: 27588755
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0161801

[…] All the statistical analyses were performed with the software IMonitor []. Comparisons between groups were performed using two-tailed t-tests with two-sided P values smaller than 0.05 considered statistically significant. The P values were corrected for multiple […]
