Single cell sequencing: from concept to benchtop

In the past decade, researchers have discovered a wealth of information that could only be revealed by investigating biology at its smallest functional units: individual cells. In this educational webinar series, we’ll introduce you to single cell technologies and their advantages, and then walk you through the basics of experimental design and data analysis.

Each webinar in this series will consist of a ~40 minute presentation followed by a live Q&A session.

What is single cell sequencing and why does it matter?

Single cell sequencing enables scientists to uncover heterogeneity that bulk techniques overlook, bringing clarity, detail, and nuance to studies across a wide range of applications. With this overview, you can start to explore the ways in which single cell sequencing can transform your own research.

In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn about different methods commonly used for single cell sequencing, with a focus on gene expression
  • Become familiar with the general workflow and key points to consider when planning an experiment
  • Discover the advantages of single cell technology and how it complements techniques you already know
