It is my pleasure to invite you to the next Nencki Institute seminar which will take place next Thursday, the 2nd of March at 3pm at the CN lecture Hall.
We will host dr. Tomasz Kaminski, a Group Leader at the University of Warsaw, Faculty of Biology, Institute of Biochemistry. In his work, Dr Kaminski develops cutting edge microfluidic strategies to study biology at single cell resolution.
Dr. Kaminski will give a lecture entitled Single-cell assays in microdroplets
Water-in-oil droplets, made and handled in microfluidic devices, provide a new experimental format in which ultra-high-throughput experiments can be conducted faster and with minimal reagent consumption. This seminar will present our novel microfluidic technologies for enzyme engineering, functional screening and transcriptomic profiling of single cells. We have demonstrated that multistep single-cell genomics methods, such as VASA-seq, enable the best-in-class RNA capture efficiency of both non-polyadenylated and polyadenylated transcripts across the entire transcript length. Recently we have applied these novel methods to generate the first large-scale total-RNA-seq atlas profiling mouse gastrulation and early organogenesis
The seminar will be followed by a get together.
With best wishes
