  • Inspiring curiosity in the next generation of scientists

    Olivia-10x on May 14, 2020

    Hear from Katie Sullivan-Bibee, Senior Supervisor of Molecular Biology Assay Development at 10x Genomics, as she shares her story of coming to love science and nature. Plus, find resources to raise your own little scientists with an appreciation for scientific exploration and discovery.

    Growing up in the Bay Area, Katie Sullivan-Bibee, Senior Supervisor of Molecular Biology Assay Development at 10x Genomics, was always fascinated by animals and nature as a child. She attributed her passion for scientific exploration today to some of her earliest experiences interacting with the natural world:

  • Adapting together during laboratory shutdowns

    Olivia-10x on May 11, 2020

    Find support for your single cell and spatial experiments during laboratory shutdowns. Explore resources from the 10x Genomics Technical Support Team, addressing how to store samples, when to safely pause your experiments, and more.

    Many individuals and organizations have been significantly impacted by the coronavirus and subsequent public health ordinances to shelter in place. Scientists and research institutions are among those who continue to face challenges as a result of a number of laboratory shutdowns, including unfortunate loss of animal cohorts, cell lines, and, critically, time.

  • Answering Your Questions about Single Cell Applications for SARS-CoV-2 Research

    Olivia-10x on April 30, 2020

    Researchers around the world are responding to the need to understand the underlying biology of the novel coronavirus. They are studying how the virus infects, what determines cell type-specific susceptibility to infection, what degree of immune response distinguishes severe and mild cases, and what antibodies can be leveraged to target and stop the virus.

  • Building a complete picture of cancer: A team effort

    Olivia-10x on April 23, 2020

    We invite all cancer researchers to come together virtually as a global community to support each other, share research findings, and advance discovery. Explore the latest research with leading scientists at the Virtual Cancer Symposium, and find guidance for single cell sample preparation workflows that can empower you to build on their findings and resolve the complexities of cancer.

    Whether deciphering the cellular features of the tumor microenvironment, or investigating the basis of therapeutic response, cancer researchers face the challenge of developing comprehensive knowledge of a complex and heterogeneous disease. Through collaboration and shared technological innovations, however, a more complete picture of cancer biology can emerge.

  • Keep your kids engaged and scientifically savvy during shelter-in-place

    Olivia-10x on April 16, 2020

    Looking for something fun and educational to do with your kids while working from home? Explore some of the easy science experiments and fun resources 10x-ers are using to keep their kids engaged and excited about science. This is science at home, the 10x way!

    Calling all parents. We’re right there with you in the struggle to keep our children entertained during this extended season of shelter-in-place. As scientists, who are constantly testing how to solve our current and most pressing problems, we decided to put our efforts into creating interactive and educational activities.

  • What are the latest innovations in the immunologist's research toolkit?

    Olivia-10x on April 8, 2020

    Explore these data visualizations of peer-reviewed immunology publications, and download our Immunology Research Highlights to learn about recent groundbreaking discoveries across diverse immunology applications, including antibody discovery and immunotherapy.

    Immunology research is changing and adapting as new tools and innovative methods support and accelerate established workflows. In the effort to delve deeper into the complex molecular and cellular networks and responses of the immune system, and translate discoveries into actionable insights for the treatment of infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, and cancer, researchers are increasingly turning to multiomic single cell and spatial characterization technology.
