GenomeWeb/ABRF 2018 Webinar Series: Novel Tools for Multidimensional Profiling of Single Cells


Senior Research Scientist, New York Genome Center’s Technology Innovation Lab

Resident Physician, Department of Anatomic Pathology, division of Neuropathology, University of California San Francisco

This webinar introduces 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 describes 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 covers 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 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.
