Single-cell RNA-Seq Gaining Steam

rna-seq A general and flexible method for signal extraction from single-cell RNA-seq data (1/22/2018) - Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) is a powerful high-throughput technique that enables researchers to measure genome-wide transcription levels at the resolution of single cells. Because of the low amount of RNA present in a single cell, some genes may fail to be detected even though they are expressed; these genes are usually referred to as dropouts. Weill ...
rna-seq Post-doc position available – Single Cell Genomics (1/15/2018) - Job ID 6760362 Date posted 01/10/2018 Job Description The Postdoctoral Scientist, Single Cell Genomics associate will play a key role within BD Technologies and Innovation (BDTI) at the...
rna-seq Taming the transcriptome with RNA-Seq (1/15/2018) - There’s a new RNA-seq in town. Although the old RNA-seq administered a certain rough justice, profiling RNA species well enough to support a relatively crude conception of the transcriptome, the new RNA-seq is more refined...
rna-seq Reconstructing differentiation networks and their regulation from time series single-cell RNA-Seq data (1/11/2018) - Generating detailed and accurate organogenesis models using single cell RNA-seq data remains a major challenge. Current methods have relied primarily on the assumption that decedent cells are similar...
rna-seq Single Cell RNA Sequencing – Workshop (12/22/2017) - Location & dates EMBL Heidelberg, Germany 15 - 18 May 2018 Deadlines Application - 20 Feb 2018 Course Overview The goal of this course is to teach the fundamentals of NGS library preparation...
rna-seq Performance comparison of single-cell RNA-seq platforms (12/21/2017) - SIB – Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics Hubert Rehrauer, Functional Genomics Center Zurich: https://www.sib.swiss/rehrauer-hubert/hubert-rehrauer-sub
rna-seq Researchers combine in vivo labeling, patch clamp, and single cell RNA-seq to correlate anatomy and function with gene expression in individual neurons (12/20/2017) - The classification of neurons into distinct types is an ongoing effort aimed at revealing and understanding the diversity of the components of the nervous system.
rna-seq Granatum – the user-friendly web tool for single cell RNA sequencing analysis (12/12/2017) - Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) is a frontier research area that studies genomic events down to the individual cell level, providing unprecedented insights into many biological and medical questions, such as cancer heterogeneity and tumor...
rna-seq A new generation of single-cell sequencing methods enables a more detailed brain map (12/12/2017) - Researchers have developed new single-cell sequencing methods that could be used to map the cell origins of various brain disorders, including Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. By analyzing individual nuclei of cells from adult human brains, researchers at the University of California San Diego, Harvard Medical School and Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute ...
rna-seq SIDR – simultaneous isolation and parallel sequencing of genomic DNA and total RNA from single cells (12/8/2017) - Simultaneous sequencing of the genome and transcriptome at the single-cell level is a powerful tool for characterizing genomic and transcriptomic variation and revealing correlative relationships...
