Jill Dowen and Bill Marzluff have secured a supplement from NIGMSto purchase an instrument for single cell isolation and recovery. This instrument will allow for more rapid and efficient genome editing of mammalian cells than current methods, and can also be utilized for single cell genomics. The instrument combines immunofluorescence imaging, robotic plating, and a special array that holds single cells. The technology was developed at UNC in the lab of Dr. Nancy Allbritton.
