VIRTUAL SEMINAR: A Revolution in Single Cell Genomics featuring BioSkryb Genomics ResolveDNATM and ResolveOMETM Technologies
Thursday, February 2nd, 1:00pm-2:00pm EDT University of Michigan – Virtual Seminar


  • Advantages of PTA in genome uniformity and coverage
  • How complete genome and transcriptome from individual single-cells can enhance your research aims
  • The latest PTA publication information in Science, Nature Genetics & PNAS
  • The fact that there really is very little room for improvement between unamplified bulk DNA sequencing performance and PTA because scWGA will ALWAYS need amplification…i.e. PTA is proven, via publications to be the pinnacle of scWGA technology.

      BRCF Bioinformatics Core Summer 2022 Workshop Series

      The BRCF Bioinformatics Core is offering two online workshops targeted toward researchers who would like to better understand the analysis of differential gene expression in bulk RNA-Seq data.July 25-27 9 AM – 1 PMComputational FoundationsAugust 8 – 109 AM – 1 PMRNA-Seq Demystified 

      • Computational Foundations workshop assumes no previous coding/programming experience. RNA-Seq Demystified assumes a basic knowledge of genetics and prior enrollment in a Computational Foundations workshop, Software Carpentry workshop, or equivalent experience.
      • The cost is $300/seat for the entire two-workshop series. While it is possible to register for a single workshop, we recommend that you attend both. When you enroll in the RNA-Seq Demystified workshop, you can request to be automatically registered for Computational Foundations. (The Computational Foundations is free of charge; however please note that: 1) registration precedence is given to RNA-Seq Demystified attendees and 2) general admission registration for Computational Foundations opens later in July.)
      • Registration closes 7/18/2022.

      If you have any questions, please email or by visiting the Bioinformatics Core website.
