The Single-Cell Biology Shared Resource provides access to facilities, equipment, and expertise for the study of gene expression, protein abundance, and genetic alterations at single-cell resolution. We offer expert-level, quality-controlled service for challenging applications single cell applications, and can provide assistance with every stage of a single-cell experiment, including study design, tissue dissociation, cell culture, population enrichment, cell sorting, quality control, and library preparation, and data analysis.

To inquire about a single-cell project idea, contact Jon Preall.

We are currently seeking a limited number of beta-test partners to provide tissue samples along with an idea of the target cell subpopulations to be enriched prior to single cell capture and sequencing. If desired, the single-cell core facility will work closely with clients to develop optimal tissue isolation, handling, and dissociation protocols, as well as cell sorting. Contact Jon Preall to get started.
