Description:

Could single cell transcriptomics advance your research?

Learn advanced techniques for single cell isolation, RNA amplification and gene expression profiling by RNA-seq from leaders in the field at the University of Pennsylvania’s Penn Program in Single Cell Biology.

Techniques include:

  • Single cell isolation – patch pipette, Isoraft, Fluidigm C1
  • RNA amplification – linear amplification (aRNA), Smart-seq
  • Image-based methods
  • RNA-seq library preparation
  • Basic informatics

Participants may bring their own samples, on consultation with course instructors.
