10X Genomics Platform
10X Genomics enables single cell capturing and individual library construction with help of microfluidics, oil droplets of nanoliters and up to millions of different barcodes. Transcriptome information of 500 to 10,000 single cells can be isolated within one run. Accompany with high-throughput sequencing, transcriptome study can be extended to single cell level, which makes it a perfect technique to reveal single cell phenotyping and differential expression analysis between cell populations. It has been widely applied in various biomedical arena including diseases, immunology, cancer research ,etc.
