UCSF Group Wins NHGRI Funds to Develop High-Throughput Single Cell Digital Sequencing Methods | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Researchers at the University of California, San Francisco have been awarded funding from the National Human Genome Research Institute to develop methods for accurate and unbiased single-cell sequencing using digital droplet multiple displacement amplification, or sc-ddMDA.

The three-year funding, which was announced earlier this month and totals $713,363 for the first year, is in the form of an R01 grant to physicist Adam Abate, whose UCSF lab focuses on droplet-based microfluidics.
