Comparison of single cell sequencing data between two whole genome amplification methods on two sequencing platforms.

ABSTRACT: Research based on a strategy of single-cell low-coverage whole genome sequencing (SLWGS) has enabled better reproducibility and accuracy for detection of copy number variations (CNVs). The whole genome amplification (WGA) method and sequencing platform are critical factors for successful SLWGS (<0.1?×?coverage). In this study, we compared single cell and multiple cells sequencing data produced by the HiSeq2000 and Ion Proton platforms using two WGA kits and then comprehensively evaluated the GC-bias, reproducibility, uniformity and CNV detection among different experimental combinations. Our analysis demonstrated that the PicoPLEX WGA Kit resulted in higher reproducibility, lower sequencing error frequency but more GC-bias than the GenomePlex Single Cell WGA Kit (WGA4 kit) independent of the cell number on the HiSeq2000 platform. While on the Ion Proton platform, the WGA4 kit (both single cell and multiple cells) had higher uniformity and less GC-bias but lower reproducibility than those of the PicoPLEX WGA Kit. Moreover, on these two sequencing platforms, depending on cell number, the performance of the two WGA kits was different for both sensitivity and specificity on CNV detection. The results can help researchers who plan to use SLWGS on single or multiple cells to select appropriate experimental conditions for their applications.
