Abstract: The aim of this work is to extract features and create high quality datasets through integration of multiple information resources for somatic hypermutation (SHM) analysis in the clonotypic immunoglobulin (IG) receptors of patients with Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia (CLL). This can set the basis for an in-depth investigation of a series of as yet unanswered biological questions, through data mining analysis, which is clinically relevant given the great prognostic value of SHM in CLL (Damle et al, 1999). The virtue of the proposed approach is illustrated via the case of “towards analysis” which is our attempt to identify potential developmental transformation or movement of IG gene germlines towards other IG gene germlines through SHM.
