Xenium in situ Launch Event at UCSF Genomics CoLab

Xenium in situ Launch Event at UCSF Genomics CoLab

November, 2023

The 10x Genomics subcellular spatial profiling platform, Xenium, is now at UCSF and available as a service through the UCSF Genomics CoLab. In this seminar, we will introduce our high-plex in situ spatial technology with subcellular resolution.

The Xenium platform reveals new insights into cellular structure and function by performing high-throughput mapping of 100s of RNA targets in their true tissue context. The platform includes a versatile and easy-to-use instrument, sensitive and specific chemistry, a diverse menu of customizable panels, and powerful visualization software. Join us for a look at Xenium and learn how it can seamlessly be implemented in your research today. In this webinar, you will:

● Get an overview of the platform, including current and future capabilities

● Learn how the easy-to-implement workflow minimizes hand-ons time and explore our expertly curated, validated and customizable panels

● See how the Xenium Explorer desktop software enables interactive data exploration Attendees will have a chance to receive a discount off their first Xenium kit.

Flow CoLab Presents Build Bigger, Better Panels with StarBrightTM Dyes from Bio-Rad

Flow CoLab Presents: Build Bigger, Better Panels with StarBrightTM Dyes from Bio-Rad, by Anjilna Wali

September, 2023

With the advancement of technology, flow cytometers are now able to detect a much greater range of fluorescent dyes, facilitating the analysis of more extensive and complex multicolor immunophenotyping assays. However, this has also introduced more pitfalls to navigate during experimental design.

Join this lunch and learn seminar to find out how StarBright Dyes and best practice can help circumvent many of these issues, enabling consistent and reliable results.

When: Friday, September 22nd, 11AM - 1 PM

Where: S-857, Medical Sciences Building

 

Hackathon

The 2023 ICBI Hackathon is Coming Up! 

August, 2023

CoLabs and ImmunoX are gearing up once again to hold the upcoming ICBI 2023 Hackathon on Thursday August 24th and Friday August 25th. The event draw participants with diverse perspectives, including clinical fellows, postdoctoral researchers, staff scientists and PhD students.  

Over the course of the two-day in-person event, teams will work together to analyze the complex phenotypes of autoimmune disease using single-cell sequencing data from human samples. Similar to previous years, winning teams will be announced at the ImmunoX annual retreat and awarded cash prizes! 

Gabi Fragiadakis, PhD, Director of the Data Science CoLab, is the faculty organizer, with help from ImmunoX administrator Jonathan Wilson. If you have any questions concerning the hackathon or its time requirements, please contact Jonathon at jonathon.wilson@ucsf.edu.
