## V(D)J Diversity and Statistical Inference

##### Abstract:

This talk will include an introduction to the topic of V(D)J rearrangements of particular subsets of T cells and B cells of the adaptive human immune system, in particular of IgG heavy chains. There are many statistical problems that arise in understanding these cells. This presentation will be my attempt to provide some mathematical and computational details that arise in trying to understand the data.
