  • Brief Introduction

    Well, alright, I should probably be working on a manuscript or two, or processing some sequences, but I'll take a quick shot at an introduction:

    I'm currently a graduate student at the BC Genome Sciences Centre, in Vancouver, BC, working towards a PhD in bioinformatics. My focus is on the use of Illumina/Solexa sequencing to identify mutations/pathways/genes involved in the development of cancers (primarily breast cancer). I've also been involved in several other projects, including transcriptome analysis, ChIP-Seq analysis and even a bit of aligner work.

    I currently have software developed in Java (cross-platform) to work on all of these different experiment types, and I'm slowly releasing them once they reach some semblance of maturity.

    I also blog on the topic of next-gen sequencing, on occasion, on my blog at fejes.ca.

    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

    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.

    Read type and length
    AVITI is a short-read benchtop sequencer that also offers an innovative...
