Relying on average measurements will often be misleading when the cells being studied are heterogeneous. By applying single-cell genomic techniques, the role of cell heterogeneity in complex systems such as stem cell differentiation and cancer development can now be directly assessed.

The purpose of this seminar is to take a deeper look into these new techniques, as well as to introduce the single cell omics services launched by the UNC CGIBD Advanced Analytics Core.
