  • What to do with old 454 instruments?

    Has anyone given thought to how these 454 instruments might be repurposed? Seems like we ought to be able to come up with ideas. If Roche would release the control software at some point, we have 365,000 wells to play with and a facile reagent delivery system.

    I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with ideas. Either online or offline. I'm not a tech-transfer person, just a biologist who likes to play with toys.

    Ours is a big paperweight at the moment. Would love to hear if you come up with a new function (or find a market).

      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
