    B cells play an essential role in adaptive immunity and are intimately correlated with pleiotropic immune-mediated diseases. Each B cell occupies a unique B cell receptor (BCR), and all BCRs throughout our body form “BCR repertoire.” With the development of sequencing technology and coupled bioinformatics, accumulating evidence indicates that BCR repertoire largely varies under physiological and pathological conditions. Therefore, comprehensive grasp of BCR repertoire will provide new insights into the pathogenesis of immune-mediated diseases and help exploit efficient diagnostic and treatment strategies. In this review, we start with an overview of BCR repertoire and related sequencing technologies and summarize their current applications in immune-mediated diseases. We also underscore the challenges of this emerging field and propose promising future directions in advancing BCR repertoire exploration.
