Single cell RNA sequencing is a paradigm-shifting technology that has changed how we make discoveries in cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative biology. Previously only biologists equipped with computational and bioinformatics skills could use it. At Biomage, we have changed that.
This is a story about a small team of mission-oriented engineers, bioinformaticians and researchers who have reduced single cell data analysis time from several months to a week and made it available to every biologist to do entirely themselves. How did we do it, what did we learn, and how can these lessons be applied in other engineering contexts?
