Single-Cell Sequencing for Drug Discovery: Applications and Challenges

Sarah Middleton from GSK gave this talk at DOE CSGF 2019. “Advances in techniques for single-cell RNA sequencing have made it possible to profile gene expression in individual cells on a large scale, opening up the possibility to explore the heterogeneity of expression within and across cell types. This exciting technology is now being applied to almost every tissue in the human body, with some experiments generating expression profiles for more than 100,000 cells at a time.”

Truly Inspiring: Fighting World Hunger with Cray Supercomputers

In this video, Computational biologist Laura Boykin describes the threat to lives and livelihoods the whitefly represents, the international effort to fight it, and how supercomputing flips the script on a once unwinnable war. “Cray supports visionaries like Laura and her scientific colleagues in East Africa in combining computation and creativity to change outcomes.”
