  • Targeted sequence capture - Nimblegen + GS Junior

    Hello all, first time here...

    I am attempting to put together a proposal that involves sub-genomic sequencing experiments and need some help. Here is how I envision it working:

    I would like to take 40-50 primary tumors and extract genomic DNA, create a custom array chip that will capture my regions of interest (three well-characterized genes that are 50-100kb in length).

    Sequence these regions across all tumors and look at the genetic variation present therein.

    I am hoping to use a GS Junior to do the sequencing (that works right?) and they recommend NimbleGen capture arrays.

    Does this sound feasible??

    Much obliged!

    It does, I would look into LR-PCR instead of sequence capture first, could be cheaper for those few genes (depending on if you want to sequence the whole gene or only the exons, if only the exons arrays are probably cheaper).

      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
