      Abstract:

      DATE: December 3, 2019

      TIME:  9:00am PST

      Microglia are the brain's resident immune cells and play key roles in normal development, maintenance of homeostasis, and disease. Using a combination of single cell sequencing and RNAscope we have uncovered novel populations of microglia in both early post-natal development, injury, aging, and neurodegeneration. We have also found that microglia are uniquely sensitive cells and require great care when performing both scRNA-seq and smFISH/RNAscope to ensure accurate results.

       

      Learning Objectives:

      • Discuss how Spatial Information from RNAscope is the key component of single cell studies to both localize populations spatially and validate sequencing results.
      • Describe how RNAscope verifies artifactual gene expression observed in scRNA-seq when cells isolated under improper conditions
      • Summarize how HiPlex assay enables significantly more accurate localization of specific cell states in situ
