MIDAS Challenge Grant funds study of single cells

Research led by a team of scientists from across U-M makes the analysis of individual cells possible, unlocking potential advancements in biology research and other disciplines. The study team used seed money from a Michigan Institute for Data Science Challenge Grant to generate more than $37 million in funding.

SCSAP Monthly Seminar Series

The SCSAP. Monthly Seminar Series is taking the summer off and will resume in September!

We are excited to announce that when we return in September we will be switching our Monthly Seminar Series to a hybrid format! Stay Tuned for Details!!



 If you’re planning on running 10x Genomic services like Chromium or Visium, we have an award opportunity for UM SCSAP RESEARCHERS AND MEMBERS to incorporate a new technology that enhances gene and UMI detection by up to 50%. Our CRISPRclean Single Cell RNA Boost Kit removes overabundant, non-informational nucleic acids to improve representation of important sequences. MORE INFO HERE
