That's Good Science!
SMART-Seq Pro Biomarker Discovery Contest
What else can you discover?
Unlocking the secrets of the transcriptome calls for full-length mRNA-seq. Takara Bio invented SMART-Seq Pro technology to unveil full-length transcripts from thousands of single cells. Our Cogent bioinformatic tools help you uncover new biomarkers such as splice variants, gene fusions, and SNPs that are missed with end-counting methods.
Let's turn your ideas into reality
Tell us what you want to discover with full-length sequencing and win a free single-cell transcriptomics study using your favorite cells. The service will include library prep using the SMART-Seq Pro Application Kit on the ICELL8 cx Single-Cell System, Illumina sequencing, and data analysis using our Cogent NGS tools. The grand-prize winner will receive the above service for free, and twenty-five runners-up will receive a “That’s Good Science” gift box.
