About The Webinar
Traditional RNA-seq produces a representative snapshot of the transcriptional state averaged across all cells. The caveat with traditional RNA-seq is the resolution of individual cells and cellular subpopulations are lost. Various single-cell RNA-seq techniques have emerged to allow researchers to not only identify cellular subpopulations, but to fully interrogate them. In this webinar, we will review the applications of popular single-cell RNA-seq approaches. We will then highlight case studies using a microdroplet technology, the 10x Genomics Chromium™. This platform is driving the evolution of single-cell RNA-seq, offering high-throughput, cost-effective and interactive analysis.
About The Presenter
David is a molecular biologist with a passion for applying novel techniques to address important biological questions. During his doctoral work at Cornell University, David discovered and characterized a p53-regulated family of microRNAs involved in a variety of cancers. He began his postdoctoral training at Stanford University, where he used next generation sequencing and 3D organoid culture to characterize the role of intestinal stem cells in cancer. A second postdoctoral fellowship at Princeton University allowed him to employ a variety of RNA-seq techniques to characterize transcriptional control of cell proliferation and quiescence in normal and disease states. David’s role at GENEWIZ includes evaluating and implementing new genomics technologies within the Next Generation Sequencing department.
