Single Cell Sequencing Core

Boston University’s Single Cell Sequencing Core provides in-house services for single cell RNA sequencing to all researchers at Boston University and to external researchers on an available-resource basis. As a high-throughput core, we provide an array of services to get you from sample to high-quality single cell gene expression data and analysis. We offer multiple single cell library preparation options and next-generation sequencing.

Our single cell services include library preparation using microfluidic devices using the Chromium Single Cell 3′ System from 10x Genomics and Bio-Rad® Single-Cell ddSEQ Single-Cell Isolator, or manual plate-based library preparations using CEL-Seq2. We interface with the BUMC Microarray and Sequencing Core to perform Illumina sequencing of single cell libraries. We also perform tissue dissociation and Bioinformatics analysis as a fee-for-service. Visit our services section for more information.
