Abstract: Immunoglobulin heavy and light chains are assembled respectively from germline V, D, J and V, J segments within a process called V(D)J recombination involving the development of T and B lymphocytes. The discovery that abnormal antibodies are often related to a wide range of pathologies conducted during the last years to many studies inherent the immunoglobulin features. In particular the identification of the functional V(D)J sequence of an antibody is considered fundamental since it could allow to understand the link between a particular disease and a specific recombination in a certain tissue and to promote the engineering of therapeutic antibodies. Objective of the implemented pipeline consists in the identification of the so called ’main clone’ that characterizes a neoplastic tissue using paired-end RNA-Sequencing (RNA-Seq) reads.
