Single cell WGS study performed jointly at UBC and BCCRC aimed to analyze genome heterogeneity, mutational process and clonal evolution over tens of thousands of single cells or single nuclei from a variety of tissues. The author developed DLP+, a fully integrated pipeline from wet bench to analysis

The platform was successfully used to study lineages and tissue heterogeneity according to parameters such as genome state, ploidy, copy number alteration and single nucleotide variant.
