  • Alternative sequence enrichment methods

    I am looking into alternatives to NimbleGen sequence capture prior to Roche/454 GS FLX sequencing. Does anybody have experience of using the following sequence enrichment methods? Can they be used successfully for Roche/454 GS FLX sequencing?


    Agilent SureSelect (possibly Illumina only)

    Any other alternatives?

    We are going to test Combimatrix's arrays in the following weeks.
    Have you ever tryed any of the methods you mentioned before? How did they work?

      I checked Combimatrix website, but am not sure how their exon capture works. Could you share some detail?

        They do not have a sequence enrichment product (array) out yet. What we are trying to do is testing their arrays to see if they could be usable (and most interestingly for $ , REUSABLE) for seq enrichment. The method of hibridization would be the same as with Nimblegen's or Agilent's arrays.
        Unfortunately the samples are not back yet.. so I ll keep you updated when we have some results from the sequencer

          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
