Relying on average measurements will often be misleading when the cells being studied are heterogeneous. By applying single-cell genomic techniques, the role of cell heterogeneity in complex systems such as stem cell differentiation and cancer development can now be directly assessed.

The purpose of this seminar is to take a deeper look into these techniques, as well as to introduce the single cell omics services recently launched by the CGIBD's Advanced Analytics Core (http://www.med.unc.edu/cgibd/cores/advanced-analytics).

In addition to this seminar, we will be running a week-long introduction April 14-18 with discounted introductory project pricing and onsite application support. Interested parties should contact Carlton Anderson (canderson@med.unc.edu) or Greg Bauer (Greg.Bauer@fluidigm.com) directly for more information.
