2021 was a fruitful year for research and we are pleased that single-cell analysis using Tapestri enabled numerous impactful publications. Tapestri was used for a variety of applications, such as revealing the resistance mechanism of cancer, detecting measurable residual disease (MRD), and assessing the mutations of gene-edited disease models. Several studies also leveraged single-cell analysis to investigate disorders of solid tissues, including melanoma, lung cancer, and vascular disease. Below, we have compiled a list of the publications so you can review the great work of your peers.
As this new year begins, we are excited about the insights that single-cell DNA sequencing and multi-omics will reveal. At Mission Bio, we continue to live and breathe our mission: to enable researchers to better understand diseases and develop next-generation of therapeutics. Looking forward, we are eager to hear about the great breakthroughs to come. Bravo to a great 2021 and cheers to another great year ahead!
