The diversity of repertoires of B-cell and T-cell receptors is generated by a stochastic process of gene rearrangement called VDJ recombination, and is later sculpted by selection, clonal proliferation, and somatic hypermutations. I will show how these processes can be learned quantitatively from high-throughput repertoire sequencing data. The resulting models can then be used to estimate the diversity of repertoires and their overlap between individuals, to identify condition-specific immune receptors from patient cohort data, and to detect signatures of immune responses in single patients, opening the way for novel sequencing-based diagnostic and prognostic tools.
