  • Omics Playground Platform

    Dear Seqanswers' community,

    We would like to introduce a new platform for the analysis and visualisation of transcriptomics and proteomics data that we recently published in NAR Genomics and Bioinformatics (here).

    The platform is designed for ease of use once installed and requires users to input four flat text files (including a raw read counts file) as input. Examples of the format are provided in the documentation.

    The platform can be installed locally on various operating systems (including Windows) via a docker file, while the open source code is available on github:

    Docker: https://hub.docker.com/r/bigomics/omicsplayground

    Github: https://github.com/bigomics/omicsplayground

    It can perform a wide range of analyses, including statistical comparison with Connectivity Map expression profiles. It can also intersect different algorithms to provide more stringent and reliable hits (for example, at the gene expression level it can intersect the results of up to 8 different methodologies used in EdgeR, Deseq2 and limma) . A more exhaustive list of functions is described in the documentation.

    We also have a google group where you can contact us with questions:

    Google Group: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/omicsplayground

    We would appreciate your feedback on the platform.

    We are planning to develop an open access web-based version in the near future as well, to make the platform more accessible.

    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...

    Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
    by seqadmin
    Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

    The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
