GenomeWeb/ABRF Webinar Series


About the Series                  

GenomeWeb and the Association of Biomolecular Resource Facilities are partnering for the third year to produce a series of online seminars highlighting methods, techniques, and instrumentation that support life science research.

Special thanks to the series sponsor, Canon BioMedical.

This page will be updated throughout the year as more webinars in the series are scheduled, so please check back regularly!

Novel Tools for Multidimensional Profiling of Single Cells

This webinar will introduce new technologies that enable multidimensional measurements from single cells to obtain a more complete picture of a cell’s phenotype and gene expression.

The first part of the webinar will describe two recently developed applications that use antibody conjugated oligos to enhance existing single-cell RNA-seq platforms: CITE-seq (Cellular Indexing of Transcriptomes and Epitopes by Sequencing), which allows measurement of a potentially unlimited number of protein markers in parallel to transcriptomes; and Cell Hashing, which enables sample multiplexing, robust multiple detection, and super-loading of scRNA-seq platforms, allowing confident recovery of four times as many single cells per experiment.

The second part of the webinar will cover the recently developed Patch-seq technique, which combines whole-cell patch clamp recording, immunohistochemistry, and single-cell RNA-sequencing to obtain high-quality morphology, electrophysiology and scRNA-seq data in parallel from single cells.

Our expert panelists will present an overview of the key protocol steps and quality control measures, as well as a discussion of potential applications and ongoing efforts to increase throughput.

American scientists find themselves once again warning the Trump administration not to dismiss science, the New Yorker report.

A new study suggests CRISPR could be used to save coral reefs from dying off, Forbes reports.

Researchers have found that the i-motif shape of DNA previously observed in the lab also exists in human cells, and that it may serve a purpose.
