Developing Single-Cell Capability

4 April 2018

The Oxford Genomics Centre, as part of the Wellcome Centre for Human Genetics, is a partner in the Oxford Single-Cell Biology Consortium (OSCBC). The OSCBC represents a large grouping of researchers at Oxford with interests in Single-Cell imaging, isolation and analysis. It is led by a Steering Group chaired by Prof Doug Higgs and incorporates two Single-Cell Facilities – the one at OGC and one at the Weatherall Institute for Molecular Medicine (WIMM). OGC’s focus has been to develop infrastructure and technical capability to work with scientists across Oxford and elsewhere in the isolation (Fluidigm C1, FACS and 10X Genomics) and processing of single cells using automated and miniaturised liquid-handling instruments (Labcyte ECHO and Beckman) for a range of single-cell sequencing applications (e.g. RNA-Seq, whole-genome amplification and sequencing, single-cell exomes and ATAC-seq).

Please email us for more information. We also run a weekly methods and analysis lab meeting at OGC.
