Single Cell Genomics

Single cell genomics examines the sequence information from individual cells with optimized next generation sequencing technologies, providing a higher resolution of cellular differences and a better understanding of the function of an individual cell in the context of its microenvironment. Sequencing the DNA of individual cells can give information about mutations carried by small populations of cells, for example in cancer, while sequencing the RNAs expressed by individual cells can give insight into the existence and behaviour of different cell types, for example in development.

The tools for single cell genomics are advancing rapidly, from single cell sample preparation, library preparation and data analysis. The development of new, powerful assays are delivering us the ability to approach the field from a multi-omics point of view.
