RIKEN CLST's Genomics Miniaturisation Technology Unit

Our mission

We develop methods for population transcriptomics, to describe a biological sample as a population of single cells, classified by the RNAs that they contain. We use new methods to prepare sequence libraries from tens of thousands of individual cells. We expect population transcriptomics to contribute to the discovery and monitoring of biomarkers, and to provide a high resolution to all the studies of the effect of drug treatments in therapies and cellular reprogramming.
