10x Genomics User Day at Cardiff University

It was great to see so many people at the recent Cardiff University 10x Genomics User Day. The day comprised a series of talks by both Cardiff University researchers and 10x Genomics, giving everyone a thorough overview of these powerful technologies.

Thank you to all the presenters and organisers.

There are plenty of contacts at Cardiff University who are involved with these technologies. Feel free to email us if you'd like to be pointed in the right direction to learn about and access these technologies.
