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
