Identification of immunoglobulin (IG) and T-cell receptor (TR) gene rearrangements in acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) patients at initial presentation are crucial for monitoring of minimal residual disease (MRD) during subsequent follow-up and thereby for appropriate risk-group stratification. Here we describe how RNA-Seq data can be generated and subsequently analyzed with ARResT/Interrogate to identify possible MRD markers. In addition to the procedures, possible pitfalls will be discussed. Similar strategies can be employed for other lymphoid malignancies, such as lymphoma and myeloma.
