10x Genomics Chromium Next-Gen Sequencing Platform

10x Genomics has launched its Chromium System, a next-generation genome sequencing platform. The system builds on the original 10x GemCode technology that enables multiple applications and includes a suite of comprehensive workflow solutions. These include the Chromium Single Cell 3' Solution, which performs deep profiling of complex cell populations with high-throughput digital gene expression on a cell-by-cell basis; the Chromium Genome Solution, which provides comprehensive linked-read information on a genome-wide scale; the Chromium Exome Solution, which provides linked-read information for phasing, structural variant detection, and copy number determination; and the Supernova Assembler, which enables high-quality, low-cost everyday diploid de novo assemblies.
