Whole Exome Sequencing (WES)

Also known as targeted exome capture, Whole Exome Sequencing sequences the protein coding sequences of the genome (exomes) rather than the complete genome. It is estimated that the protein coding regions of the human genome constitute about 85% of the disease-causing mutations.

Exome sequencing is done to identify the functional variation that is responsible for both Mendelian and common diseases. Most of the diseases or phenotypes are caused by variations in coding regions, and so it is an alternative for whole genome sequencing based on a research question.

RNA Sequencing

RNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) is a powerful technique that allows researchers to study the complete transcriptome profiling. A transcriptome is a complete set of transcripts, which includes their quantities as available in the cell, for specific physiological conditions. A complete understanding of the transcriptome gives enormous information on the functional components of the genome, molecular components of cell, tissues and knowledge on disease development.

Different technologies such as hybridization-based, and sequence-based approaches, and specialised microarrays have also been used earlier to study the transcriptome, but they were found to not be very effective for large volumes of data. Development of RNA-Seq based on the high-throughput DNA sequencing method has solved that problem to a great extent.

miRNA Sequencing

miRNA Sequencing is also a type of RNA-Seq with the difference being that the input is enriched for small RNAs. miRNA-Seq enables researchers to study tissue-specific expression patterns, isoforms of miRNAs, disease relationships and to find out novel uncharacterized miRNAs.

With unprecedented sensitivity and dynamic range, small RNA sequencing methods allow for the most accurate detection and quantification of rare small RNA sequences.

ChIP Sequencing

ChIP-seq is a powerful method to map transcription factor binding sites and histone modification status on a genome-wide scale. This technique is a combination of chromatin immunoprecipitation assays with sequencing.

Main steps in the ChIP-seq include cross-linking a protein to chromatin, shearing the chromatin, using a specific antibody to precipitate the protein of interest with its associated DNA, reverse cross linking and finally purifying the associated DNA fragments.

TCR Sequencing

T-cells are the core components of our adaptive immune system. Once activated, they can directly kill cells that are foreign (cytolytic T-cells) or perform helper function (helper T-cells) to activate B-cells to make antibodies against foreign antigen. The activation of T-cells involve recognition of MHC-peptide complex by the T-cell receptors (TCR). Humans carry >109 T-cells, each expressing a unique TCR. This highly diverse repertoire of T-cells has the ability to recognize peptides originating from foreign elements such as invading pathogens and cancer cells. Each TCR recognize peptides in complex with MHC proteins presented on the surface of antigen presenting cells. Productive T-cell activation results in the clonal expansion of a specific T-cell and this expansion can be accurately determined by TCR sequencing. In cancer, TCR sequencing has predictive and prognostic value and can lead to the development of novel therapeutics such as engineered T-cells.

Analysis of T-cell population requires generation of large quantity of data to cover each and every unique TCR expressed by T-cells present in the population. This is achieved by next generation sequencing of genomic DNA from purified T-cells. Both α and β chain of the TCR are sequenced to determine clonal diversity of the complementary-determining regions (CDRs) of the individual receptor. The CDR1 and CDR2 regions contribute binding to MHC and the CDR3 region to the peptide presented by the MHC. The diversity in the CDR3 region can be assessed by sequencing the β chain of the TCR complex.

Single cell Sequencing

MedGenome offers a wide range of single cell sequencing services using the 10X Genomics Chromium system coupled with Illumina HiSeq and NovaSeq next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms.

Single cell sequencing enables the study of sequence information from discrete cells with next generation sequencing (NGS) platforms such as Illumina’s HiSeq, and NovaSeq. For samples that have a heterogeneous microenvironment, this yields a higher resolution understanding of the inherent cellular differences even at low quantity of target DNA/RNA.

Single cell techniques have found various applications that includes detection of DNA mutations, copy-number variants (CNVs), DNA-protein binding, RNA splicing, and the measurement of mRNA expression.

The Chromium system uses 10 X GemCode technology that partitions cells and prepares sequencing libraries in parallel so that all partitions of a particular cell share a common barcode. Upon sequencing, the 10 X Chromium Software can decode the sequence information for each cell using the barcode information.

Example workflow of 10X Genomics system for single cell RNA sequencing

10x GemCode Technology fuels the Chromium System with an innovative reagent delivery system, set of algorithms and turn-key software analysis tools that enable the discovery of previously inaccessible genetic information at massive rate and scale.

Single cell sequencing has applications in:

Cancer sequencing – Single cell sequencing studies help in dissecting the intra-tumour genetic heterogeneity at single cell resolution. Another area where it is showing considerable promise is in Circulating tumour cells (CTCs) – which can be isolated and interrogated as a potential window into the genetics of a tumour through non-invasive sampling.

Metagenomic studies – Single cell genomics approaches greatly helps in renewed understanding of microbial ecology. Specifically, it enhances our understanding of the genomic basis of phenotypic variation between closely related strains, which in turn can be applied for targeted studies of immunogenic bacteria in disease.

Single cell transcriptomics – helps by deciphering the rich information the RNA offers about the phenotype and function of a cell.  It examines the level of gene expression in individual cells by simultaneously measuring the messenger RNA (mRNA) concentration of hundreds to thousands of genes. This transcriptomic data will help in mapping all the mammalian organs, tissues and cell types at single cell resolution.

Single cell epigenomics – Epigenetics which is widely studied now based on the correlations made in bulk cell populations is soon changing owing to the increasing evidence of studies indicating how genotypically identical individual cells develop unique phenotypes as a result of unique spatial localization and temporal order. Single cell epigenomics techniques can be combined with RNA expression and SNP data to identify the mechanistic role of epigenetics in gene regulation precisely.

Sample Requirements

Single cell sequencing in the 10x Genomics system requires a live single cell suspension as the sample input. Cells can be obtained from heterogeneous populations of fresh tissue and fresh or cryopreserved cells. Samples can be prepared from a variety of cell types and animal species, such as human or mouse. Highly viable cells with minimal cellular aggregates is a critical sample requirement in order to accurately capture data from single cells. The platform only requires a small cell sample input, ranging from 500 – 10,000 cells per sample.
