Seminar | February 27 | 2-3 p.m. | 390 Hearst Memorial Mining Building


Prof. Hirofumi Shintaku, Kyoto University, Micro Engineering

Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute


Single cell analyses have become powerful tools in the study of heterogeneous cell populations such as tumors and developing embryos. Isolation of RNA and DNA from the same single cell is crucial to create an opportunity for correlating mutation with gene expression at the single cell level.

However, it still remains challenging as RNA and DNA samples potentially cross-contaminate each other......   More >
