Our high-quality data analysis platform will be used to generate high-quality analysis results in a fast analysis cycle.

Research Advances in ScATAC-seq Analysis

The majority of genetic variation associated with complex human traits is located in non-coding genomic regions. Thus, understanding the genotype-to-phenotype axis requires a comprehensive catalog of functional non-coding genomic components, most of which are involved in epigenetic regulation of gene expression. With the advent of single-cell biology and the application of various sequencing-based histological techniques, it has become possible to study chromatin accessibility at single-cell resolution due to the development of single-cell ATAC sequencing (scATAC-seq). However, computational analysis of scATAC-seq data remains challenging. In addition, various potential functional elements within accessible genomic regions can increase the complexity of interpreting scATAC-seq data if the scATAC-seq data is not well understood. Recently, computational algorithms and software tools have been developed for scATAC-seq data analysis, such as SnapATAC.

Application Field

Our scATAC-seq analysis can be used for but not limited to the following research:

Developmental biology: our scATAC-seq analysis can reveal dynamic changes in chromatin accessibility during embryogenesis, greatly contributing to our understanding of developmental processes. It is able to identify cis-regulatory elements that coordinate spectral specification and tissue-specific gene expression patterns. By studying the chromatin accessibility landscape at different developmental stages, we help you gain insight into the molecular mechanisms of tissue morphogenesis and cell differentiation.

Disease studies:by comparing chromatin accessibility profiles between healthy and diseased cells, we can help you identify disease-specific regulatory elements and gain insight into dysregulation of gene expression programs. This information may lead to the discovery of new therapeutic targets and the development of precision medicine approaches, including cancer, neurological disorders and immune-related diseases

Cell type classification and genealogy tracking:our scATAC-seq analysis enables the classification and identification of different cell populations based on chromatin accessibility profiles. This information facilitates cell type characterization, lineage tracing, and discovery of cell-specific regulatory elements.

Immune system analysis:our scATAC-seq analysis provides a powerful tool to analyze the epigenetic landscape of immune cells, enabling the characterization of cell types, identification of regulatory elements involved in the immune response, and exploration of immune cell differentiation trajectories.

CD Genomics uses powerful clustering algorithms to identify distinct cell populations based on chromatin accessibility profiles. Through integrated analysis with other histological data (e.g. scRNA-seq), we can assign cell types and further dissect the regulatory landscape within specific cell populations.

(4) Differential accessibility analysis

To elucidate the regulatory dynamics between different cell types or conditions, CD Genomics provides differential accessibility analysis. By comparing chromatin accessibility profiles between cell groups, we can identify differentially accessible regions associated with specific biological processes or disease states. This information provides valuable insights into the functional implications of epigenetic changes.

(5) Trajectory analysis

CD Genomics uses sophisticated trajectory analysis algorithms to reconstruct cellular trajectories based on chromatin accessibility data. By inferring the developmental pathways of cells, we can gain insight into the regulatory events that drive cell fate decisions.
