Immunogenomics opens unprecedented possibilities
Era7 Bioinformatics offer now its Immunogenomics Service IM7 as a natural complement of its NGS Microbiology services.
Immunogenomics is changing the way we understand Immune System and Immune responses in many different situations. This is due to the unprecedented sequencing capabilities brought by the so called Next Generation Sequencing, High-throughput sequencing or Massive sequencing technologies.
Based in amplicon sequencing approaches, it is now possible to have accurate information about the B Cell Receptor (BCR) and T Cell Receptor (TCR) repertoires. These masive sequencing approaches named Rep-Seq methods are being very useful and now it is possible to understand the natural immunological history of infectious diseases, vaccines, autoimmune and inflamatory diseases, tumor immunology with especial applications in cancer immunotherapy.
Beside B cell and T cell repertoire analysis the HLA genotype can represent a clue piece in the understanding of the immune responses and therefore we also offer HLA genotyping using NGS to complete our Immunogenomics services.
