This session will provide an overview of the latest technologies and directions in the field of transcriptomics. Transcriptomics is the study of the expression levels of RNAs produced by the genome in a sample at a given time.

• What is transcriptomics and what can we gain from studying RNA expression profiles
• Techniques used in transcriptomics research in the lab and clinic
• Benefits of looking at RNA expression levels with single cell resolution and how to do it
• How single-cell transcriptomics lends itself to translational research and personalized medicine
