  • No key wells

    Hi everyone!

    could anybody explain me what a "no key" in the GS Run Browser application’s Wells tab means?, because we are having a lot of these wells.

    thank you

    Those are wells where no bead was detected- control or library.

      key is a 4nt sequence on 454 adaptor/primer which is next to sequencing primer site.

      I think no key means the beads didn't carry the right DNA template. Did you mix 2 different DNA libraries (amplicon and rapid library) in the same region? If that's not the case, you may want to send a run report to tech support to check if there is any fluidic issue with the machine.

        Dear Newmoon,
        we didn't mix experiments, and when we sent the report to the technical service, they only told us that it could be a warning with the enzime chiller temperature plot, but we don't think that this was the reason.

          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
