Single-Cell Sequencing: The Challenges and Opportunities
Recent technological advancements have made single-cell sequencing an increasingly powerful tool for understanding biology and cellular function, disease diagnosis, therapy response prediction, and treatment selection. Historically, sequencing technology only enabled an average analysis of a total cell population. In contrast, today tens of thousands of individual cells from a single tissue sample or patient can be analyzed, giving researchers an unprecedented opportunity to understand individual cell populations and their behavior in diseased tissue.
These opportunities are underpinned by the substantial developments in next generation sequencing (NGS) technologies in parallel with the decreasing cost to conduct these studies.
