Detection T cell receptor transcripts

Hello, I planned to explore diverse T cell receptor transcripts using long-read sequencing. So I transfected TCR mini gene into cells and got sequencing data.

I mapped my data to genome reference and visualize it via IGV. But I couldn't see any transcripts from TCR plasmid on the chromosome 7 where T cell receptor locus is.

How can I detect reads from transfected plasmid? Shall I make custom reference file using plasmid map?

Or should I use any specific ways to detect TCR transcripts like IGMT, MiXCR, IgBLAST and so on?

I just want to see the diversity of splicing patterns using tools like FLAIR.

I need your advice! Thank you.

Did you find any solution? I'm also trying to find T cell receptor expression in NGS transcriptome data, and it doesn't seem like it's represented anywhere. It's gotta be there somewhere, right?

Hi Andrew. I just used my plasmid map as a custom reference. So I can not advise you :( But I got some information from papers using ImmunoSeq. I think maybe there is some information for you!

Hi, as you said, you could add the sequence of your minigene to your reference fasta. After uploading it to IGV, there will be a new option in the chromosome select field to view reads mapping on the mini-gene.

Maybe you have artificial subsequences in your minigene, which makes it different from the original locus.
