10x Genomics First to Market With Product to Simultaneously Capture Epigenome and Transcriptome
“This is one of our most ambitious undertakings at the company,” said
The new solution builds on an array of new products launched by the company this year for both its Chromium platform for single cell analysis as well as its Visium platform for spatial genomics. Early customers already working with Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression include
“My lab is interested in understanding why some immune cell types fail to fight the cancer,” said Dr.
“Until now, we have relied on computational prediction to match a cell's epigenome to a single-cell gene expression profile,” said Dr.
"With this new technology, we can better understand the mechanisms affected by the non-coding risk genetic variation across a wide range of neuropsychiatric diseases, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and major depression, along with different severity of neuropathology and clinical symptomatology," added Dr.
By using Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression, researchers can:
- Deepen their characterization of cell types and states with linked transcriptional and epigenomic analyses
- Discover cells with similar transcriptional profiles but functionally different chromatin landscapes
- Combine discovery of regulatory elements with gene expression to explore gene regulatory interactions driving cell differentiation, development, and disease
- Easily interpret epigenetic profiles with key expression markers
- Maximize insights from precious samples with multiple readouts from the same cell
