SCGC Single Cell Contest winners
Thank you to all who submitted a proposal for the SCGC 10x Single Cell contest
Announcing the Winners of the Single Cell Contest
Thank you to all who submitted a proposal for the SCGC 10x Single Cell contest and
shared your ideas and inspiration with us. We received 11 proposals from the University
faculties and affiliated hospitals, each describing innovative experimental plans to
advance research using single cell sequencing.
We are thrilled to announce our winners:
Michael Namestnikov (PhD student) and Prof. Benjamin Dekel (Sheba Medical Center
& Sackler Faculty of Medicine). The goal of the study is to establish and characterize
organoids from human fetal kidneys in order to map out cell populations and compare
them to the original tissue using single cell analysis.
Dr. Uri Ben-David (Sackler Faculty of Medicine), together with of Prof. Adi Barzel (Dept.
of Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences), proposed
a project to explore on-target effects of CRISPR-Cas9 editing. Using single cell RNA
sequencing, they want to characterize the prevalence and nature of chromosomal losses
and loss-of-heterozygosity induced by CRISPR-Cas9 gene-editing of human T cells.
Dr. Yariv Wine (School of Molecular Cell Biology and Biotechnology, George S. Wise
Facultyof Life Sciences) will focus on sequencing antigen-specific B-cell receptors isolated
from blood of COVID-19 recovered patients.
The prizes include 1 or 2 reactions of a 10x Chromium Single Cell Gene Expression
kit or Chromium Single Cell Immune Profiling kit with library prep. Please join us in
congratulating the winners!
We encourage all of you to be in touch with us to plan single cell experiments. Our
prices are very competitive. We look forward to working with all of you!
