The One and Only: Single-Cell Resolution of Autoimmune Disorders from thescientistllc on Vimeo.

Heterogeneous disorders such as autoimmune diseases are challenging to study using conventional sequencing techniques. The immune response is complex, and important mechanisms in single cells may be lost when sequencing a bulk cell population. Researchers can better appreciate the intricacies of autoimmune diseases with high throughput sequencing of individual cells. Join The Scientist for an educational webinar where our panel of experts will discuss what they have learned while researching autoimmune diseases using single-cell techniques.

Topics to be covered:

  • Multiplexed single-cell genomics
  • Single-cell genomics of lupus patients and healthy controls
  • Single-cell analysis of Crohn’s disease
