Single Cell Sequencing Core

bu-master-logoWelcome to the BUMC Single Cell Sequencing Core. Our mission is to facilitate research by providing support to investigators through cutting-edge technologies and powerful analytics. See your cells like never before.

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.

Single cell analysis is the study of genomics, transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics at the single cell level. chromosomes-2817314Characterization and gene expression profiling of a single cell enables the discovery of gene dynamics and an overall molecular profiling for individual cells. With our parallel high-throughput solutions, you can characterize hundreds of millions of cells.

We offer the most advanced technology for single cell analysis. From our library preparation, to our data analysis, you will see your research in a new light.

Our single cell services include library preparation using microfluidic devices via the Chromium Single Cell System from 10x Genomics. We collaborate with the BU Microarray & Sequencing Core to bring you massive amounts of reliable, cost-effective, and robust data via Illumina NextSeq 500 & 2000 next-generation sequencing.

We also facilitate your sample preparation by providing walk-up access to our Miltenyi GentleMACS Octo automated tissue dissociator.
