Single Cell Genomics Services

Single cell genomics (SCG) is a rapidly advancing field that allows researchers to investigate individual cells at a genomic level, providing valuable insights into cellular heterogeneity, gene expression, and genetic variation. SCG services provide a comprehensive solution for researchers who want to analyze and interpret the genetic information of individual cells. These services use cutting-edge technologies, such as microfluidics, to isolate single cells and generate high-quality genomic data. They offer a wide range of applications, including identifying rare cell types, characterizing tumor heterogeneity, and studying complex developmental processes. With the increasing availability of single cell genomics sequencing services, researchers can accelerate their research and uncover novel insights into the underlying biology of complex biological systems.

Applications of SCG

  • SCG in cancer.

Tumor initiation, maintenance, and evolution are facilitated by the successive procurement of genetic variance in single cells. SCG approaches have the capacity to resolve multifaceted blends of cells in tumors. SCG has an insightful impact on our understanding of cancer cell types. Through SCG states in cancer cells and additional cell types, we can uncover rich cell-type heterogeneity and gene-modules activity. This is becoming predominantly important as molecular assays are carried out for directing targeting therapy.

  • SCG in neurobiology

One of the major unanswered questions in neurobiology is whether there is genomic variability between individual neurons of the brain, contribution to the functional diversity, or to an unexplained load of neurobiological diseases. Single cell sequencing methods have provided great insight into questions of neurobiology that have previously been difficult to resolve in genomic data from bulk tissue samples.

  • Tissue mosaicism

It was believed that single normal cells have identical genomes, but this dogma is being challenged by increasing confirmation of genetic mosaicism in normal tissue arising in the course of the normal development of the individual. Single cell sequencing has identified variations involved in single cells of normal tissues at an exceptional genomic tenacity. Various studies have been carried out to detect de novo mutation rate and recombination map in single human sperm.

  • Immunology

The immune system of humans is largely classified into innate and adaptive modules, which involve a large variety of cell types. SCG has emerged as a powerful tool for studying individual immune cells, which makes possible the observation of rare and intermediate cell states that cannot be resolved at the population level.
