Gene expression variations for organisms, tissue, and disease states have historically been quantified using an array of techniques. Typically, these methodologies require hundreds to millions of cells as input, often resulting in only a mediocre reading across cell populations. Complex processes in biology involve a wide array of cell types, as do diseases such as cancer, so having the ability to accurately understand cell fates is critical to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanisms associated with normal and abnormal tissue growth. Recently, advances in single-cell transcriptomic technologies have allowed for the direct measurement of gene expression at the single-cell level, in order to quantify intracellular population heterogeneity and characterize cell types. These novel techniques and platforms are enabling investigators better insight into transcription dynamics and gene regulatory relationships.
In this GEN webinar, we will hear how Chromium Connect from 10x Genomics was designed to simplify single-cell library prep workflows and increase laboratory productivity. Additionally, the 10x-pert presenters will demonstrate how the new automated system will enable walkaway convenience while generating consistent single-cell gene expression results.
A live Q&A session will follow the presentations, offering you a chance to pose questions to our expert panelists.
