This CPRIT funded facility supports collaborative projects and core services for single cell sequencing technologies. The center is directed by Dr. Nicholas Navin ( and Tuan Tran and consists of four main components: (1) tissue dissocation facility, (2) technologies & assays, (3) next-generation sequencing and (4) data analysis.  Another focus of SCGC is on training and education activities, including weekly seminar series and annual training workshops and the development of new single cell technologies.  The SCG has two tracks available for users: (1) core services and (2) collaborative projects.
