Single-cell genomics seminar, Oct. 25

Learn about applications in single-cell technologies and single-cell multi-omic automation, and discuss what technologies and tools could support your research.

The seminar will be held at two locations on Thursday, Oct. 25
Robertson Life Sciences Bldg., room 1S040
10 to 11:30 a.m.
Mackenzie Hall, room 3198
2 to 3:30 p.m.

University Shared Resources and the Knight Cancer Institute Integrated Genomics Laboratory are hosting a single-cell genomics seminar presented by Takara Bio USA.

The seminar includes two presentations followed by a Q and A.

Single-cell technologies: Breaking performance barriers in single-cell NGS library prep

  • Reproducible and sensitive measurement of CNVs and SNVs from single cells enabled by SMARTer PicoPLEX Gold Technology
  • Efficiently produce strand-specific RNA-seq libraries from rRNA-depleted, poly(A) enriched or total RNA with SMARTer Stranded RNA-seq technology

Automation: Do more in a well than in a bubble with SMARTer ICELL8 technology

  • Isolate cells or nuclei independent of size (e.g. cardiomycotyes, microspheroid 3D tumors)
  • Get cleaner data with advanced imaging software that allows selection of single-cell wells and removal of empty wells and doublets
  • Choose from a wide range of prevalidated applications or develop your own custom applications


Coffee and light snacks will be provided.

No RSVP required. For more information or questions, please contact Aaron Larson at
