Single-Cell Analysis Platform

The Genomics Core Facility offers a wide variety of single-cell sequencing workflows to study heterogeneity within the epigenome, genome, transcriptome, and proteome at a single-cell resolution. Services are provided using the 10x Genomics Chromium and the BD Rhapsody platform.

These technologies allow the processing of thousands of single cells for downstream molecular analysis. DNA and RNA from every single cell can be barcoded and further investigated using high-throughput sequencing.
We collaborate with our local Flow Cytometry, Advanced Light Microscopy and Bioinformatics Core Facilities at the Institute for Cancer Research to deliver a complete workflow for single-cell analysis. 
Applications established for service:
  • Single-cell immune profilingsequencing of the full V(D)J region for quantitative  -cell and B-cell characterization (Chromium & Rhapsody)
  • Single Cell ATAC: (Assay for Transposase Accessible Chromatin): allows chromatin accessibility profiling of tens of thousands of single cells in parallel
  • Single-cell multiome: Simultaneously profile gene expression and open chromatin from the same cell with Chromium Single Cell Multiome ATAC + Gene Expression.

We are working to establish additional applications: Single nuclei RNA-Seq.
