The seminar aims to provide insights into the latest technologies in scRNAseq and multiomics, which are essential to understand gene regulation and single-cell heterogeneity. The program includes an introduction to single-cell multiomics with the BD Rhapsody™ analysis system, insights from the system in real-life applications, and exploring COVID-19 at a single-cell resolution. The speakers areContinue reading “BD Single-Cell Multiomics Day – Join us on 21st March in Bonn and Online!”
