Using large-scale RNA sequencing to probe immune response, including autoimmune disease and vaccination
Posted on Wednesday, October 13, 2021 By
Researchers are efficiently exploring immune responses with a new bulk RNA sequencing workflow that generates full-length reads of B or T cell receptor V(D)J and (C) region mRNA. The discoveries incorporating this unique view are shedding light on previously unanswerable questions surrounding immune response to infection and therapeutic intervention.
