The VDJtools Clonotypes format is a simple text file format of the VDJtools software package [Shugay et al., 2015].
To import this format, use the Standard Import tool
Import () | Standard Import ()
VDJtools Clonotypes (.txt) in the Force import as type menu of the dialog.
The file format is tab-separated. The first line of the file must start with a '#' and describe the contents of the columns. An example first line is:
#count freq cdr3nt cdr3aa v d j VEnd DStart DEnd JStart
The following named columns must be present in the file: "count", "freq", "cdr3nt", "cdr3aa", "v", "j". All other columns are ignored during import.
For non-coding CDR3 sequences, the "cdr3aa" column may represent an incomplete codon using either "~" or "_".
