Cellular heterogeneity plays a critical role in systems and pathologies, but many genomic analysis techniques derive their findings from multicellular samples, potentially burying key information from individual cells or rare subsets. Next-generation sequencing-based single-cell whole transcriptome amplification analysis techniques can overcome this limitation, but they are not always cost-effective and parsing the large amounts of data obtained to access the relevant portions can take significant amounts of time.

The solution to these challenges lies in utilizing a focused “targeted” analysis strategy. Targeted analysis prioritizes select genomic regions associated with a scientist’s research aims, providing the most relevant datasets that are also manageable to work with. Targeted sequencing detects and provides understanding of cell-to-cell differences, which is essential to not only identifying key mechanisms of pathogenesis, but developing therapeutic strategies with an eye towards personalized medicine.
