ONJCRI Cancer Single Cell Genomics Laboratory

Overview

The Cancer Single Cell Genomics Laboratory (CSCG) specialises in using innovative single cell techniques to deconstruct tissue samples and reveal the genetic architecture of individual cells and offers training, advice on experimental design and collaboration options. 

The ONJ Cancer Centre is also home to the ACRF Centre for Imaging the Tumour Environment (CITE) which can provide researchers with the information required for the development of effective anti-cancer therapies. CITE offers one-on-one customised training, advice on experimental design and collaboration options. Researchers are supported at all stages of their project from design through to image analysis and reporting.
