Cellular genomics is the study of the genetic makeup of a single cell – from the cell’s entire DNA code (its genome), to the secondary code that organises the genome (its epigenome), and the total genetic output of the cell (its transcriptome). At once exquisitely detailed and massively high-throughput, cutting-edge cellular genomics technologies make it possible to unlock unprecedented insights into how cells work individually, and how they function together, in ways that were impossible only a few years ago.
To realise the full potential of cellular genomics, it is crucial to bring together several intersecting technologies. The Garvan-Weizmann Centre of Cellular Genomics fulfils this function, acting as a seamlessly integrated ‘one-stop shop’ to bring together state-of-the- art technologies in cell handling, genomics (the analysis of the genome and its outputs in the cell) and informatics (drawing meaning from highly complex data).
