Our recent paper details a strategy, co-developed with the Love Lab at MIT, for pairing TCR sequencing with whole-transcriptome profiling in single-cells via 3′-barcoded techniques. Using a targeted pulldown and amplification method, we are able to sequence TCR CDR3 regions from pre-existing scRNA-seq libraries, increasing the amount of orthogonal information recoverable from archived samples. Read press releases on the technique here and here, as well as the protocol and computational tools.
