Module: Sample Contamination Analysis

IMDA Prep includes besides the FACS error correction module, a cross-sample contamination analysis module. This analysis is based on UMIs. If MIGEC is used for data preprocessing, this module can be used immediately.

If MIGEC is not used for preprocessing, the reads within the FASTQ files require the following ID format: @ReadID RX UMI:NNNNNNNNNNN:Y


The number of shared clonotypes is stored within the summary files and visualised using Venn diagrams (Figures 9A and 9B).
