Single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) service

The CGC provides single cell RNA sequencing service using the 10X Genomics Chromium system combined with the Illumina sequencing machine. The 10X system makes it possible to profile thousands of single cells. Here are web links introducing scRNA-seq from 10X Genomics:
