Welcome to the 10x Blog

From tips and tricks to 10x news, our blog is here to help you learn about all things 10x. Let us know what topics you would like to see in the Community Suggestions forum.

How will single cell sequencing technologies shape the future of neuroscience research? Find answers, and check out 10x Genomics, at the 49th Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in Chicago, IL. 
In this guest blog post, Kasandra Burgos PhD, a 10x Genomics Science & Technology Advisor, shares her fascination with neuroscience. The mysteries of the mind intrigued Kasandra long before she started her career here, and now she’s excited to help customers understand the value of applying 10x Genomics assays to address questions in the field of neuroscience.
What are the cellular and molecular changes driving pathogenesis of autism spectrum disorder and multiple sclerosis? Find out how 10x Genomics customers use single cell and single nucleus gene expression profiling to approach these questions in two high profile neuroscience publications. 
Maniatis et al. used spatial transcriptomics to define changes in gene expression at different stages of ALS progression. Learn more at the Cell Symposia: Neuro-Immune Axis, starting September 22 in Long Beach, or watch Silas Maniatis in his upcoming webinar on October 8! 
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.
Single-cell RNA-seq enables researchers to examine gene expression on a cell-by-cell basis providing insights into the function and regulation of complex biological systems.  In our recent 10x-pert Workshop, R&D scientists discussed single-cell RNA-seq data analysis tools, including Cell Ranger™ analysis pipelines, and performed a live demo of Loupe™ Cell Browser for data visualization.
We recently hosted our first live, online 10x-pert Workshop featuring single-cell sample prep topics.  Two of our R&D scientists gave a presentation detailing general do’s and don’ts followed by a closer look at two of our demonstrated protocols for preparing nuclei for single-cell RNA-seq and removing dead cells.
New to 10x or need a refresher?  No problem.  Check out our new Chromium™ Single Cell 3’ training video series. Learn more about GemCode™ technology, single cell sample prep, data analysis and more.
Why share our 1.3 million cell dataset? We believe the public sharing of single cell data will fuel biological discovery and enable big-data software tool development.
  In recent years many technologies have been developed to look at individual cells at both the DNA and mRNA level to better understand what cell types are present in a tissue and how their malfunction can lead to disease.
