Droplet-Based Single-Cell Sequencing

Cells form the basic unit of life and can broadly vary in biological structure and function. Nucleic acids encode the information of life by programming cellular functions at the level of transcription for specific biological outcomes. Single-cell genomics provides a window to characterize the identity and function of cells. Drawbacks of the technique include a lack of practical ease and scale. Sequencing information provides a map to understand the properties of a single cell; including the type, state and nature of its biology during its regular function and during pathogenesis. Since all cells are not alike, it is increasingly important to recognize the difference between cells for deeper insight into their behavior for tailored treatments¬†in personalized medicine. It is possible to probe the properties of individual cells in the lab using advanced single-cell sequencing techniques. (more…)
