What is single cell sequencing?
Single cell sequencing is a new technology for high throughput sequencing analysis of genome, transcriptome and apparent group at a single cell level. It can make up for the limitations of traditional high-throughput sequencing, reveal the gene structure and gene expression state of single cells, and reflect the heterogeneity between cells. In 2013, single cell sequencing technology was listed as the top six most noteworthy areas in the year by Science, and again on the cover of Science translational medicine in 2015. At present, single cell sequencing technology plays an important role in cancer, developmental biology, microbiology, neuroscience, botany and other fields. It is becoming the focus of life science research. It has broad application prospects.
