Study Description

The trillions of cells that constitute the human body are developed from a fertilized egg through embryogenesis. However, cellular dynamics and developmental outcomes of embryonic cells remain to be largely unknown due to the technical and ethical challenges. Here we sequenced whole-genomes single-cell-derived clones and various bulk tissues dissected from entire human bodies. Using the discovered somatic mutations as an intrinsic barcode, we reconstructed cellular phylogenetic trees that provide novel insights into early human embryogenesis.

Dataset ID Description Technology Samples
Human single cells were clonally expanded by culture and whole-genome sequenced. This dataset includes 334 clonal samples and 7 blood bulks from seven individuals (DB2, DB3, DB5, DB6, DB8, DB9, DB10). We extracted genomic DNA materials from clonally expanded cells and matched peripheral blood using DNeasy Blood and Tissue kits (Qiagen) according to the protocol. DNA libraries for WGS were generated by an Accel-NGS 2S Plus DNA Library Kit (Swift Biosciences) from 1 µg of genomic DNA materials. ... (Show More)
Illumina NovaSeq 6000 240
To estimate the contribution of early embryogenic cell lineages in adult tissues, we performed deep targeted sequencing on 379 bulk tissues from various organs of the five individuals (DB3, DB6, DB8, DB9, DB10). Of the 441 early embryonic mutations targeted, 411 mutations could have high-quality baits designed for them. DNA libraries were prepared by SureSelectXT Library Prep Kit (Agilent), hybridized to the appropriate capture panel, multiplexed on flow cells, and subjected to paired-end ... (Show More)
