Single Cell Omics

Our mission is to provide a one-stop solution for single-cell analyses. We support high-level research by providing access to platforms allowing unbiased characterisation of cellular identities and regulatory states from heterogeneous samples. Such analyses of individual cells rather than bulk populations can provide new insights into cellular development, responses of individual cells to biological signals […]
