Sequencing of bulk cells, single cells, and nuclei is opening doors in the understanding of complex biological processes. However, the success and reliability of these methods depends strongly on the quality of the sample. A poor sample quality, for example containing a lot of dead cells, debris, and contamination from cell-free DNA and RNA, impairs sequencing results and also the costs of an experiment. In this webinar, Miltenyi Biotec will highlight the importance of gentle, multi-parametric cell sorting prior to genomic analyses, and how to achieve this by using the microchip-based MACSQuant® Tyto® Cell Sorter.
Alexander Jonsson from Uppsala University recently published new insights on the physiology of pancreatic microvascular endothelial cells (MVECs), a highly heterogenous cell type. Endothelial cell attributes have important implications for various biological processes, such as tissue homeostasis, transplantation, and neoplasia. Alexander will explain how he obtained these cells in a gentle way in order to analyze differences between MVECs in the endocrine and exocrine compartments of the pancreas via RNA sequencing. With this study, he was able to show how islet capillaries in the pancreas differ from their exocrine counterparts at the transcriptome level.
