IMGT/HighV-QUEST[1] (V-QUERy and STandardization) is part of IMGT®, the international ImMunoGeneTics information system® [2].

IMGT/HighV-QUEST is the high-throughput version of IMGT/V-QUEST [3,4] for the analysis of thousands of immunoglobulin (IG) and T cell receptor (TR) rearranged nucleotide sequences (up to 150 000 sequences) per run.

IMGT/HighV-QUEST has been developed by IMGT®, the international ImMunoGeneTics Information System® to answer the problematic of the analysis of the antigen receptor data from Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS).
