摘 要:

  Characterization of the interaction between cancer and immune system is critical to developing novel immunotherapies. Here in this talk, I will present two computational methods we have developed. The first one is Tumor Immune Estimation Resource, or TIMER (https://cistrome.shinyapps.io/timer/), which is a statistical tool for deconvolving different immune cell components in the tumor microenvironment using gene expression data. The second one is called T-cell receptor Repertoire Utilities for Solid Tumor, or TRUST (https://bitbucket.org/liulab/trust), which is a de novo assembler for analyzing the TCR hypervariable sequences using unselected RNA-seq data. Application of both methods to large cancer cohort lead to biological findings with potential clinical applications.
