Mouse cell lines (A20, NIH3T3) and human cell lines (HEK, BJ) were processed using the SureCell WTA 3′Library Prep Kit. Consistently high numbers of detected genes demonstrates that recovery of transcripts is not limited by cell size.
A. BaseSpace-generated plots of the number of unique molecular identifiers (UMI), i.e. transcripts, assigned to the mouse/mm10 (red) and human/hg19 (blue) genomes for each cell barcode. Unique transcripts mapping to both mouse and human (purple) represent cell doublets. B. Cumulated fraction of unique transcripts assigned to cell barcodes (linear scale). The inflection point (red line) determines the number of barcoded cells detected in the sequencing run.
A. PCA clustering of 1384 single cells sorted from a 1:1 ratio mixture of HEK 293 and NIH 3T3 cells, sequenced and analyzed with the Single-Cell RNA-Seq BaseSpace App. B. Cell populations cluster based on expression of the human (hg19) RPL13 gene.
A. Analysis in the Single-Cell RNA-Seq BaseSpace App using the t-SNE algorithm of a mixture of NIH 3T3 and HEK 293 cells identifies a distinct subpopulation of cells. B. Cells color coded by gene expression of hg19 RPL 13 confirms the identity of the subpopulation as human.
Analysis of cell cycle state using the Single-Cell RNA-Seq BaseSpace App is based on unique transcript counts of genes associated with each phase of the cell cycle, normalized by the total count for each cell. Expression is centered by the median and scaled by the median absolute deviation for each cell cycle.
