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.
The new Single Cell ATAC Solution accelerates the understanding of the regulatory landscape of the genome, thereby providing insights into cell variability. And now, our new demonstrated protocol, Nuclei Isolation for Single Cell ATAC Sequencing, is available for download.
We're excited to announce our Single Cell Summer Webinar Series. Join us to hear from our R&D scientists and meet our new and upcoming single cell solutions for CNV, ATAC-seq, mouse immune profiling and feature barcoding.
The extensive collection of Illumina sequencing datasets, described by Bo Zhou and his co-authors (Alexander Urban Lab, Depts. of Psychiatry and Genetics) in a recent bioRxiv preprint, are derived from J. Craig Venter’s genome.
We’re excited to share our newest update to the Chromium Single Cell Immune Profiling Solution—mouse immune repertoire profiling!
Our fourth North American UGM of 2018 was held on May 18th in New York, and we’re happy to report that it was packed, both with information and attendees! 
Watch the on-demand Nature webcast presented by CITE-Seq co-author, Peter Smibert PhD.
Our 4th North American User Group Meeting of the year took place on May 2nd in Houston, giving us a chance to check in with our Southwestern community of customers and researchers.
The second European User Group meeting for 2018 took place in Uppsala, Sweden at the SciLife Lab. Over two days we saw many great talks from both 10x staff giving software demos and customers sharing their success stories.
Our 3rd North American User Group Meeting of the year took place on Thursday, April 26th, in Chicago, and we were thrilled to see so many members of the 10x community there!
In celebration of Earth Day this year, our own Andrew Gottscho, a conservation biologist and software field operations engineer, reports about his own experiences with endangered animals and the importance of genomics to study and help conserve these populations.
AACR 2018 is officially over! It was a great conference and the last day was no exception. 
AACR 2018 might be more than halfway over, but it didn’t show any signs of slowing down today. It was another jam-packed day full of highlights, starting with a Symposium on cell fate and treatment response
The first single-cell sequencing datasets from the Human Cell Atlas initiative are now available to the research community. Featuring data generated with 10x technology, the new datasets collect information from more than 500,000 cells.
From posters to talks to our Exhibitor Spotlight co-sponsored with Miltentyi Biotec Day 2 at AACR 2018 was all about single cell genomics!
Today was a big day for 10x at AACR 2018! Not only did I get to check out a bunch of great posters and talks featuring 10x technology, but I also got to attend the 10x Genomics Workshop, “Revealing the True Biology of Cancer."
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the Chromium Single Cell CNV Solution. Combing high-throughput single cell profiling with genome-wide copy number variation (CNV) information, our new solution enables researchers to reveal genomic heterogeneity and understand clonal evolution.
Our second UGM of 2018 was held on March 14th in South San Francisco, where we were joined by more than 150 customers and researchers from throughout the Bay Area.
The Chromium Single Cell Immune Profiling Solution is a comprehensive approach to simultaneously examine the cellular context of the adaptive immune response and the immune repertoires of hundreds to millions of T and B cells on a cell-by-cell basis.  In this workshop 10x-perts Stephane Boutet and Sarah Taylor discussed how the Single Cell Immune Profiling Solution can be used to characterize the tumor microenvironment.
It’s User Group Meeting season; catch up on what happened in San Diego
Please join us on Tuesday, March 20th for the next 10x-pert workshop: Characterization of the tumor microenvironment with the Chromium Single Cell Immune Profiling Solution.
Elfin, Aurora and Qila leave their mark — Reference-Quality genome assemblies for the Northern Sea Otter and Beluga Whale inform conservation efforts and health studies
AGBT 2018 delivered some great science, talks, posters and time to catch up with old friends. Since our workshop was jam-packed with great information and exciting product announcements this year, we wanted to share some highlights.
Linked-Reads and the Supernova Assembler enable low-cost, everyday diploid de novo assemblies. In this workshop 10x-perts David Jaffe and Nikka Keivanfar discussed Supernova assembly performance across a range of species, including human, insect, plant and vertebrates, and highlighted improvements to our high molecular weight DNA sample preparation protocols, including a new protocol for single insects.
Single-cell RNA-sequencing is a powerful tool for unraveling complex biological systems, but to take full advantage of this transformative technology, it is essential to properly prepare single-cell samples. In a recent Bench Tips article for Biocompare, we outlined some best practices for single-cell sample preparation.
