single-cell sequencing

In Science this week: single-cell sequencing to study zebrafish and frog embryonic development.

Researchers at the annual Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities meeting said they are joining single-cell sequencing to other single-cell analyses.

At the Association of Biomolecular Research Facilities annual meeting this week, the ABRF Genomics Research Group presented results from its comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms.

The two studies used Drop-seq RNA profiling to discover essentially all cell types and establish cell lineages in a model organism flatworm. 

The study found that resistant clones in triple-negative breast tumors existed prior to chemo, but transcriptional changes happened in response to therapy.

The researchers said the method can help subtype and identify rare cells with clinical implications in neurodevelopment and cancer.

In Genome Biology this week: transcription factor use among brittle stars, single-cell RNA sequencing strategy, and more.

The firm plans to focus research efforts on immuno-oncology and ongoing population sequencing projects, while continuing to push into the clinical market in India.

The company plans to launch a single-cell CNV assay, a single cell ATAC-seq assay, and a single-cell feature barcoding assay later this year.

Peking University researchers performed single-cell methylome sequencing on preimplantation cells to examine DNA methylation changes during early development.
