Tools and techniques for single-cell gene expression analysis:

scRNA-seq for biomarker discovery

Perform single-cell data analysis from raw FASTQ files to clusters of cells with annotated cell types and differentially expressed genes using QIAGEN CLC Single Cell Analysis Module. Additional functionality includes workflows for TCR- and BCR-repertoire analysis to help you study immune response, ATAC-seq support to study gene regulation via open chromatin analysis and RNA velocity analysis to study the development and differentiation of cell systems.
Large scRNA-seq datasets can be deployed locally using QIAGEN CLC Genomics Server, or deployed in the cloud, using QIAGEN CLC Genomics Cloud Engine.
Deepen your understanding of disease biology to cellular resolution using OmicSoft DiseaseLand/OncoLand together with Single Cell Lands – collections of highly curated single cell and bulk RNA-seq samples. Search for and compare your genes across scRNA-seq datasets from normal and disease tissue to discover exactly where your genes are expressed. Discover cell-specific biomarkers by exploring manually curated cell types.

Visualization of scRNA-seq data

Interactively analyze, visualize and annotate millions of cells at once, directly from your laptop.

Quickly visualize gene expression pattern within cell clusters. Explore where your gene is expressed in hundreds of disease and normal cell types across dozens of diseases, then expand your understanding by discovering disease-relevant datasets differentially expressing these genes.  Search gene signatures to discover cell types with up- or down-regulation.
Interactive 2D and 3D visualizations of UMAP and tSNE plots for single-cell expression data can be overlaid with cluster information, cell annotations and gene expressions.
Visualize differential gene expression using summary and detailed plots (volcano plot, heat map, dot plot, etc.), interactive and on-the-fly rendering based on your selection and filter settings.

Cross-comparison of scRNA-seq data

Discover subtle differences in gene expression among individual cells by importing and processing single-cell experiments, starting with raw FASTQ or quantification data using a scRNA-seq pipeline.
Incorporate your own bulk RNA-seq and scRNA-seq data into the OmicSoft Lands framework to enable rapid search and discovery of your own valuable datasets, compared side-by-side with curated OmicSoft data.
Reveal differential gene expression between pairs of selected clusters or between a cluster and the rest of the cells using the UMAP or tSNE plot editor.

Annotation of cell types and scRNA-seq data

Harness the power of QIAGEN’s curated content and algorithms to collaboratively analyze and annotate cell clusters.
With the QIAGEN CLC Single Cell Analysis module, annotate individual cells using our cell classifier. Use differential gene expression for GO analysis to guide additional manual cluster annotation. Perform manual cell type annotation with just a few clicks by using the Lasso tool.

Highly granular and manual curation of scRNA-seq datasets enables you to easily find, filter, parse and integrate data. Our detailed annotations enable you to quickly and easily find the right datasets to make insightful data comparisons.

Browse annotations to discover projects that include cell types of interest, and discover statistical comparisons including these cell types.
