Single-cell approaches are critically important in studying the molecular basis of the cell fate decisions that drive human chronic disease, such as cancer, diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases, as well as the process of aging that drives most of these diseases. Multi-omics analysis at the single cell level will help to identify and understand differences between cell types and cell subpopulations, which in turn is crucial, for example, in discovering how cancer spreads or how specialized cells can be optimally utilized in regenerative medicine.
The Center for Single-Cell Omics (CSCOmics) at Shanghai Jiao Tong University School of Medicine was founded in 2019 to become a leader in the development of cutting-edge laboratory and computational technologies for analyzing the various levels of genetic information transfer in single cells. The CSCOmics is an international research center with people from all parts of the world working as teams trying to utilize new, single-cell based technology for applications in the clinic.More >>
