Construct Your 10x Library
Construct a 10x barcoded single cell ATAC-seq library using our reagent kits and Chromium Controller. Nuclei are first transposed in bulk, and then encapsulated with a 10x barcoded Gel Bead using the Chromium Controller. Within each nanoliter-scale partition, transposed DNA fragments are labeled with 10x barcodes, where each barcode sequence represents a unique cell.Resources
The resulting 10x Barcoded single cell ATAC-seq library is compatible with standard NGS short-read sequencing on Illumina sequencers, for massively parallel epigenomic profiling of thousands of individual cells.Resources
Analyze Your Data
Our Cell Ranger ATAC analysis software generates open chromatin profiles for each cell, identifies clusters of cells with similar profiles and calls peaks, and can aggregate data from multiple samples.
Analysis Pipelines Output
Output includes QC information and files that can be easily used for further analysis in our Loupe Browser visualization software, or third-party R or Python tools.Resources
Visualize Your Data
Use our Loupe visualization software to interactively explore your results, perform differential accessibility analysis, find clusters enriched for motifs of interest, and compare across samples.
Do I need to be a bioinformatician to use it?
Loupe is a point-and-click software that’s easy for anyone to download and use.Resources
Frequently Asked Questions
It enables profiling of the open chromatin landscape at single cell resolution.
Yes, using third party tools. For more information, watch our webinar.
A nuclei suspension is needed. It is possible to obtain high quality nuclei suspensions from fresh and cryopreserved cells, fresh tissue, and frozen tissue. This assay has been optimized for human and mouse samples, although other species may be possible.
ATAC-seq captures all open chromatin regions, not just those bound by a specific factor. It is an unbiased approach to look for epigenetic changes in a sample. For proteins with a known sequence binding motif, the included software can identify those motifs that are enriched in open chromatin on a cell-by-cell basis.
