Single Cell Molecular Expression

Overview of Services

The Single Cell Molecular Expression Core (SCME) provides the following state of the art services:


  • Automated single cell capture followed by cDNA preparation using the Fluidigm C1 Single Cell Auto-Prep system
  • High throughput quantitative PCR assays and targeted template enrichment using the Fluidigm BioMark HD system
  • Manipulation of a gene of interest to achieve over-expression, reduced-expression, complete inactivation, or replacement with another gene using the latest genome editing technologies including ZFNs, TALENs and Cas9-CRISPR in cultured cells.
  • Assistance in the design, execution and analysis of next-generation deep sequencing and genome editing experiments.
