BMI Seminar // Harnessing microfluidics in few-cell and single-cell manipulations for biological discovery
Microfluidic manipulation in small fluid volumes can both increase assay sensitivities and improve reproducibility through automation. In my work, I apply microfluidics to single cell analysis, I systematically evaluate the sensitivity, precision, and accuracy of various approaches to single-cell RNA-seq. Our results show that it is possible to use single-cell RNA-seq to perform quantitative transcriptome ...
