V(D)J recombinations in lymphocytes are essential for immunological
diversity. They are also useful markers of pathologies, and in
leukemia, are used to quantify the minimal residual disease during
patient follow-up.
High-throughput sequencing (NGS/HTS) now enables the deep sequencing
of a lymphoid population with dedicated [[][Rep-Seq]] methods and softwares.
Vidjil process high-througput sequencing data to *extract V(D)J
junctions and gather them into clones*. Vidjil starts
from a set of reads and detects "windows" overlapping the actual CDR3.
This is based on an fast and reliable seed-based heuristic and allows
to output the most abundant clones. Vidjil can also clusterize similar
clones, or leave this to the user after a manual review.
Vidjil also contains a *dynamic browser* for visualization and
analysis of clones and their tracking along the time in a MRD setup or
in a immunological study. The browser can visualize data processed by
the algorithmic component of Vidjil or by other V(D)J analysis
Finally, a *server* is currently developed to link the browser and the
algorithmic part. The goal is that the clinicians will be able to
upload, manage and process their runs directly on the browser (with

* The Vidjil team
Vidjil is developed by Marc Duez, [[][Mathieu Giraud]] and [[][Mikaël Salson]]
from the [[][Bonsai bioinformatics team]] (LIFL, CNRS, U. Lille 1, Inria Lille).
Vidjil is developed in collaboration with
the [[][department of Hematology]] of CHRU Lille,
the [[][Functional and Structural Genomic Platform]] (U. Lille 2, IFR-114, IRCL),
and the [[][EuroClonality-NGS]] working group.
The research is supported by SIRIC ONCOLille (Grant INCa-DGOS-Inserm 6041) and by Région Nord-Pas-de-Calais (ABILES).
