Next generation Sequencing (NGS) has enabled high throughput analysis of T cell receptor (TCR) repertoires, which are useful for monitoring antigen- specific T cell responses. Integrating TCR sequencing with expression levels of genes that characterise T cell phenotype at the single cell level allows comprehensive analysis of T cell function and specificity. Single cell TCR sequencing on the Illumina platform enables the identification of paired TCR α/β chains and T cell phenotype from sorted antigen-specific T cell populations. Here we highlight novel techniques available for T cell phenotyping and TCR repertoire analysis.
