Routine sequencing techniques used in cancer diagnosis have primarily focused on bulk tissue genomic analysis. However, cell heterogeneity is a commonly observed phenomenon in several types of cancer, and the current methods do not properly disclose information of rare cell types that may contribute to the progression of the disease as well as play a role in drug resistance and metastasis. The lack of techniques for detecting differences in the genomic expression of a heterogeneous group of cells in clinical practice has been problematic for the selection of targeted therapies. Recent developments in single-cell analysis techniques in combination with next generation sequencing (NGS) are providing the tools to analyze and detect polymorphisms at the whole genome level of individual targeted cells. Moreover, single cell sequencing (SCS) analysis can assist in predicting cancer progression and be used as a diagnostic tool for early detection of cancer through circulating tumor cells (CTCs). In addition to the current methods used for SCS research, we also organize systems biology, pharmacy, multi-omics, bioinformatics, and deep leaning/AI-assisted clinical care, all of which, for meta-analysis, can take advantage of single-cell technology as the core source of information.
