is a Bioconductor package, written in shiny that provides analytics services on antigen receptor (B cell receptor immunoglobulin, BcR IG | T cell receptor, TR) gene sequence data. Every step of the analysis can be performed interactively, thus not requiring any programming skills. It takes as input the output files of the IMGT/HighV-Quest tool. Users can select to analyze the data from each of the input samples separately, or the combined data files from all samples and visualize the results accordingly.

Functions for an R command-line use are also available.
