Tapestri Single-cell Pilot Program and Webinar

The UMN Genomics Center has launched a three-month pilot access program for the Mission Bio Tapestri platform. Tapestri is a microfluidic device able to quantify – in combination with NGS readout – genomic variants at a single-cell level. It has been used to study clonal heterogeneity in hematologic malignancies, genome editing outcomes, and other structural genomic phenomena. See the list of single-cell DNA and protein panels or create a single-cell DNA custom panel for human, mouse, or any other reference genome of your choice.

The pilot access program is an opportunity for UMN researchers to try this technology and see if the Tapestri platform would benefit your research. The instrument will be available in our CCRB lab between December and March for any researchers to use, and limited free reagents are available for Masonic Cancer Center members. Contact single-cell@umn.edu for more information on the pilot access program.

Upcoming Webinar

Join Mission Bio for a webinar and learn about the key advantages of a single-cell multiomics technology that simultaneously measures single-nucleotide variation (SNV), copy number variation (CNV), and cell-surface protein data in the same cells.

Title: Mission Bio Tapestri for Single-Cell DNA Multi-Omics: Cancer Research and Beyond
Speaker: Holly Tillson, Ph.D. Technical Application Liason Mission Bio
Date: Thursday, December 14
Time: 10:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.
Register: Join via Zoom

Guest speaker Holly Tillson, PhD, Technical Application Liaison, Mission Bio will discuss applying single-cell DNA sequencing to precision medicine in solid tumor and hematological cancers. She’ll describe how to track the clonal evolution of cancer with single-cell DNA sequencing and how to link genotype and phenotype with multiomics— all while providing new translational applications. 

The UMGC will be available to answer questions about the pilot access program.
