  • Sample Preparation and Enrichment for Single-cell Sequencing Assays

    Date: Wednesday, January 20, 2021 at 8:00 PST | 11:00 EST | 16:00 GMT | 17:00 CET Presented by SelectScience Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA seq) has emerged as a powerful tool that can reveal complex and rare cell populations, uncover regulatory relationships between genes, and trace connections between cellular lineages in different cell types and rare populations. The high sensitivity of scRNA seq requires careful processing of the sample to ensure optimal results. In this webinar, we will discuss the basics of sample preparation, sample cleanup and enrichment methods to obtain quality data from single cell sequencing assays. Additionally, we will share how to leverage multiplexed approaches to profile gene expression, antigen-binding specificities and classify immune cell types. Learning Objectives: Sample input requirements for different single-cell assays Cleanup and enrichment strategies for obtaining high-quality data Leveraging multiplexed approaches for profiling immune cells   Who should attend This webinar will provide insights for researchers who want to understand sample requirements and basic optimization steps for single-cell assays or who are new to single-cell sequencing.

  • Finding One in a Million: Using Immune Repertoire Profiling to Translate Discoveries into Therapies

      Dr. Chris Emig, Founder and Chief Executive of Augmenta Bioworks The B-cell receptor repertoire can now be queried by next generation sequencing (NGS) at a scale that enables the rapid collection of millions of antibody sequences from any given individual. The resulting pool of rationally selected antibodies gives researchers access to a comprehensive database of antigen-specific binders and increases the chances of identifying the best antibody sequences. The growing volume of such NGS antibody repositories opens opportunities for alternative methods of therapeutic antibody discovery. Augmenta Bioworks, a biotechnology company headed by Chris Emig, PhD, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, is actively engaged in the discovery of new therapeutics by harnessing the most powerful force in the fight against disease—natural human immunity. This group has developed a novel strategy called the DeepGrid™ platform, which combines single-cell sorting with RNA sequencing to pinpoint the protective immune response of individuals and translate these discoveries into therapies. Dr. Emig explains, "We’re currently working on immune profiling and antibody discovery. Augmenta provides deep insights into human immune repertoires and a technical suite for discovering antibodies of high therapeutic potential. We work with a range of scientists, from academics seeking better insights into human immunity...
