10x Genomics has partnered with GENEWIZ to sponsor the Single Cell Genomes Scientific Challenge. We want to hear how you can use our single cell DNA solution to study genomic heterogeneity and advance your research. Share your innovative ideas in a 300 word proposal before June 30th for the chance to win a single cell DNA project.
Each June, the Alzheimer’s Association® sponsors Alzheimer’s & Brain Awareness Month — an opportunity to hold a conversation about the brain and share the fact that Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias are a major public health issue.
Hear first-hand from 10x Genomics scientists about the recent advancements in immunological research that allow the integration of simultaneous cellular read-outs to provide comprehensive characterization of immune cells.
From African wild dogs to Hawaiian monk seals, from beluga whales to Northern sea otters, these mammals all share one thing—a connection to 10x Genomics. In honor of Earth Day 2019, we want to share how our technology is playing a role in important conservation research involving these diverse creatures.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, we’ve put together a playlist of some fierce women in science talking about topics ranging from immunotherapy to the microbiome to mapping the maternal-fetal interface on a single cell level.
Our bodies and the world around us teem with billions of invisible microbes. Join us for a webinar on February 13th to learn about a metagenomic assembly method, developed by Dr. Ami Bhatt and her team at Stanford University, which promises to help define these complex microbial communities and shed light on the mechanisms by which they influence health and disease.
As 2018 draws to a close, we are excited to look back at the growing body of scientific literature that used 10x products to make important scientific discoveries. On January 1st, there were just over 60 peer-reviewed publications that used 10x products. Today, there are more than 260!
We are excited to join SfN in San Diego this year to tell you about all of the exciting new products we have recently launched to help you better unravel the multiple dimensions of neural complexity.
