The power of full-length scRNA-seq for the detection of isoforms, SNPs, and gene fusions
Advances in full-length scRNA-seq have paved the way for capturing the transcriptome in a single sequencing read. This enables the discovery of previously unknown cell types and the investigation of rare biological events such as isoforms, SNPs, and gene fusions.
In this on-demand webinar, Necip Mehmet presents data on how the SMART-Seq solution on the ICELL8 cx Single-Cell System allows for such insights. This brief talk also discusses how full-length RNA-seq has contributed to recent research in areas such as oncology and drug discovery.
- How to generate full-length RNA-seq data using the SMART-Seq ICELL8 cx Application Kit
- Why full-length RNA-seq is more comprehensive than 3′ DE or droplet-based approaches
- How paired-end sequencing enables more accurate discovery of isoforms, SNPs, and gene fusions
- Published examples of how detection of these rare events has fueled research
