  • 10x genomics single cell library prep: low yield of cDNA

    I am preparing my 1st 10x genomics single cell library from ~10000 nuclei. After preparing the cDNA I measured its concentration and in qubit it show 0.3 ng/ul. I do understand that nuclei had less RNA content. But does anyone got such low yield of cDNA from ~10000 single nuclei?

    Thanks

    I have not seen that low but it depends on starting tissue and cDNA yield should be looked at along the fragment length distribution.

      Thanks for your comments. Tissue uses here was mouse cortex. Can it be the reason that the GEM beads captured less than 100 cells? Would you mind if i ask whats the expected concentration of cDNA from ~10,000 single nuclei?

      Thanks

        I can comment if you could post cDNA TapeSation or Bioanalyser trace and also the PCR cycles used for cDNA amplification.

        If you aimed to capture 10,000 cells and ended up with 100 cells the issue will be steps prior to GEM and cDNA generation.

          Here is the image of TapeStation https://ibb.co/M1zV44b. I used 12 cycles for cDNA amplification.

            Profile looks good and can proceed to library prep according to 10x protocol.

              Thank you @nucacidhunter. One final query for future references. In your experience within which range I should expect cDNA amount while targeting to recover ~10,000 nuclei; 25-50 ng or >100 ng?

              Thanks

                It all depends on the mRNA content of nuclei influenced by many factors. I normally judge by the cDNA profile and look for lack of amplification artefacts and cDNA length distribution rather than quantity.

                  A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
                  by seqadmin


                  ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

                  AVITI from Element Biosciences: Latest Sequencing Technologies—Part 6
                  by seqadmin
                  Element Biosciences made its sequencing market debut this year when it released AVITI, its first sequencer. The AVITI System uses avidity sequencing, a novel sequencing chemistry that delivers higher quality data, decreases cycle times, and requires lower reagent concentrations. This new instrument reportedly features lower operating and start-up costs while maintaining quality sequencing.
