  • Bioinformatics Tool MultiQC Releases Important Updates

    A new version of the influential bioinformatics reporting tool, MultiQC, was recently released.

    MultiQC takes important summary statistics from other bioinformatic tools and generates a single report with interactive plots. It streamlines the process of spotting outliers and trends within the data to assist with quality control.

    Creator Phil Ewels announced the introduction of MultiQC to the SEQanswers community around its conception in 2015. It has been maintained by Ewels and Seqera labs, along with many code contributors over the years.

    The latest release of MultiQC (version 1.14) comes with new modules, features, updates, and code cleanups. The highlights include 14 new modules, most notably BBDuk, Cell Ranger, DRAGEN-FastQC, HiFiasm, NextClade and UMI-tools. In addition, 18 of the existing modules were updated to fix bugs and include useful tweaks. Among the new features, the Docker image was rebuilt and is now multi-arch.

    MultiQC has been cited in nearly 3,000 journal articles and will continue to be a vital tool for the bioinformatics community. For more information about MultiQC, visit the official website or read the details on GitHub.

    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
