Sequencing and Genomic Analysis of Single Cells — a New Solution


Next-generation sequencing and genomics using single cells is of high interest within the scientific community. Analysis of individual cells provides a significant amount of differential information, which is obscured in the complex mixture of genetic information analyzed using a cell-mean analysis. However, single cell analysis presents many challenges due to genetic heterogenity and to the methodology that is used.

This webinar will introduce a new approach to single-cell analysis — the REPLI-g Single Cell Kit, and will include:
  • Applications and challenges in single-cell research 
  • The principle of unbiased amplification from a single cell using multiple displacement amplification technology
  • Supporting data for human and bacterial single cells demonstrating a new whole genome amplification solution 

Applications of single-cell research include analysis of cancer cell heterozygosity, whole genome sequencing of bacteria, and complete genomic analysis of human cells.
