Single cell RNA-seq seminar hosted by NGI Uppsala SNP&SEQ

The SNP&SEQ Technology Platform (NGI-Uppsala), Miltenyi Biotec, and 10x Genomics welcomes all researchers with an interest in single cell sequencing.  Single cell sequencing has revolutionized life science research leading to a deeper understanding of biological processes in health and disease. Rapid technology advances are enabling large-scale projects for resolving single cell populations from 100s to millions of cells in a given study. In this seminar, Miltenyi Biotec and 10x Genomics will introduce a combined workflow for optimized sample preparation and single cell analysis, and NGI-Uppsala will present their experience preparing and sequencing scRNA-seq libraries.

Topics include MACS® magnetic cell separation any tissue, from small to large scale, from frequently occurring cells to rare cells and sophisticated subset and combined T-cell, B-cell, and 5′ gene expression analysis as well as the established 3′ single cell gene expression analysis from many diverse sample types.

Coffee/fika will be provided. We kindly ask you to register so we can order the appropriate amount of catering.
