  • SEQanswers Registers 1000th member! Traffic/posts continue to grow!

    SEQanswers has marked a major milestone this morning, with the registration of it's 1000th member, in just over 10 months of existence.

    Membership and activity have continued to grow rapidly, totally outstripping my expectations. I had some fun looking at some statistics from the database and Google Analytics this morning, and I thought I would share.

    From the above graph, the rate of new registrations continues to climb. In the month of August to date, over 160 new members have registered.

    Currently, the community represents 104 .edu institutions, 90 countries, and many companies. In total, overall 427 unique domains.

    Additionally, we have members from all the major players in the next gen sequencing arena, current instrument providers (ABI, Illumina, Roche, Danaher), informatics support companies, reagent companies, not to mention a few reporters.

    Daily traffic continues to grow as well...showing that most visits happen during the workweek.

    Posting activity has grown correspondingly:

    Clearly, the most popular thread is sci_guy's epic post Software packages for next gen sequence analysis, which has recieved nearly 10,000 views. The Bioinformatics forum is also the most active.

    Anyway, that's a peek at the community, I'm very excited to see it continue to grow, and as always please feel free to post your suggestions for new features or improvements in the Site Feedback forum

    Another interesting piece of info on the instrument ownership. I did not break it down further into users that have multiple instruments.

      Hi, no people from Helicos here yet? I guess they should be regarded as a major player if Danaher is...

        Congrats ECO,

        1000 members is a huge milestone - thanks for giving us this fantastic forum!

          Ah good point. I'll add that to the list of things to do.

            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
