Comparative analysis of sequencing technologies for single-cell transcriptomics.

Genome Biol; 20(1): 70, 2019 04 09.
Artigo em Inglês | MEDLINE | ID: mdl-30961669
Single-cell RNA-seq technologies require library preparation prior to sequencing. Here, we present the first report to compare the cheaper BGISEQ-500 platform to the Illumina HiSeq platform for scRNA-seq. We generate a resource of 468 single cells and 1297 matched single cDNA samples, performing SMARTer and Smart-seq2 protocols on two cell lines with RNA spike-ins. We sequence these libraries on both platforms using single- and paired-end reads. The platforms have comparable sensitivity and accuracy in terms of quantification of gene expression, and low technical variability. Our study provides a standardized scRNA-seq resource to benchmark new scRNA-seq library preparation protocols and sequencing platforms.
