10x Genomics at #AACR17 - April 2, 2017

Shauna Clark

Today’s the day! Don’t miss our workshop "Comprehensive Single Cell Analysis and Cancer Genomics with the Chromium™ System."  10x’s Tarjei Mikkelsen will describe the Chromium System and introduce a new solution for profiling full-length paired T-cell receptor or immunoglobulin transcripts from hundreds to millions of lymphocytes. The introduction will be followed by a presentation from Dr. Hanlee Ji, from Stanford University, on the use of the Chromium System to phase tumor genomes and characterize immune cells in a tumor environment.  It'll be happening at 1:30pm today in Spotlight Theater A, Hall A. REGISTER HERE

To learn about some more great research, check out the poster, "Adaptive resistance to chemotherapy in triple-negative breast cancer revealed by single cell DNA and RNA sequencing" presented by Charissa Kim, UT MD Anderson Cancer Center.  The authors used single cell DNA and RNA sequencing and deep exome sequencing to investigate whether resistance to chemotherapy that commonly develops in Triple negative breast cancer (TNBC) was adaptive or acquired in a cohort of 20 TNBC patients.  Read the full abstract here.

The poster will be presented in Section 17, Board 18 as part of the Session PO.MCB09.01 - Genomic Screening for Cancer Dependencies and Drug Response today from 1pm – 5pm.

And don’t forget to stop by and visit us at Booth 1644 to learn more about the Chromium™ System and its expanding suite of applications. Make sure to ask us about our newest application, the Chromium™ Single Cell V(D)J Solution, and how it can give you insight into the adaptive immune system.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s blog post to learn about some great posters to check out at #AACR17!
