Question: What fraction of mRNA transcripts are captured per cell?
Answer:Depending on the Single Cell 3' reagent chemistry (v1, v2, or v3), approximately 6.7-8.1% (v1), 14-15% (v2), or 30-32% (v3) of mRNA transcripts are captured per cell. Please note that detection of a transcript is a stochastic event, and the majority of the transcriptome is captured as a result of sequencing multiple single cells from the same population.
For more information on how this was calculated for Single Cell 3' v1, please see Zheng et al. 2017 (Supplementary Figure 2, https://www.nature.com/articles/ncomms14049).
