Scripps: New Genomic Equipment at TSRI Enables Scientists to Analyze Single Cells

Scripps Research Institute scientists now have access to equipment that enables research on the genetic roots of disease at the single-cell level. The Biomark HD System, housed in the Microarray Core Facility, was purchased through a grant from the National Institute of Health’s Shared Instrument Grant Program and is open to any researcher at the institute and outside of TSRI.

Over the last year, TSRI Professor Luc Teyton has experimented with the machine and shown that it can gather useful genomic data regarding immune cells involved in diabetes. He said researchers could also use the machine for studies of stem cells and cancer, which often track genes that originate in a single cell.
