Single-cell analysis has long been the gold standard of methods for studying variation within a cell population, but interest in the technique has been dampened by low throughput and reproducibility challenges, until recently. Advances in technologies supporting single-cell analysis have enabled an explosion of new applications, from a new way to research pluripotent stem cell heterogeneity using single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), to absolute quantification of mRNA and translated proteins within a cell. These methods all rely on digital droplet technology for improved reproducibility and higher throughput. The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to discuss their research, and to explore the technical advances available for single-cell analysis. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • Novel methods for analyzing stem-cell culture heterogeneity
  • Analysis of mRNA and proteins on a single-cell level
  • How digital droplet technology enables single-cell analyses

I am hoping that this level of inquiry will critically inform my effort to explore the material basis of instinct.  The core of the planned endeavor is the comparitive polyomic analysis of neural cells of D. imperator and another member of  Ichneumonidae which has a clearly different life cycle.
