TCR workshop 2023

The day before the ATCR2023, we will be organising a workshop on TCR data analysis.

The TCR analysis workshop is designed for researchers seeking to enhance their T-cell receptor (TCR) repertoire analysis skills. The 3-hour workshop will offer an intensive hands-on training on state-of-the-art TCR repertoire analysis tools. Participants will be guided through the TCR interpretation process, from annotated immunosequencing data to detailed insights, including exploratory analysis with TCR_Explore, unsupervised TCR clustering with ClusTCR, and predicting epitope specificity using TCRex. Basic Python skills are recommended.


The location of the workshop will be Room S.R.231, in the City Campus of The University of Antwerp (entrance through Lange Winkelstraat). Note this is a different location from the main meeting!


Registration is closed as all slots have been filled.

Attendees are required to bring their own laptops.Maximum capacity: 30 attendees.

If you want to be put on a waiting list for any slots that open due to cancellations, send us an email through the audacis contact address.
