TOMSK, Jun 4 – RIA Tomsk. Russia's first international school
of sciences devoted to new research approach – to sequencing of single cells of
organism opened in the Tomsk State University (TSU); this way of researches
offers big prospects in studying of features of cancer development and reasons
of tumors resistance to therapy, press service of TSU reports on Tuesday.
According to the press service, sequencing of single cells is a trend in
modern biology and medicine. The method allows to study a molecular portrait of
each cell separately as a part of difficult arranged body tissues. This way of
researches opens opportunities for identification unknown before cellular
processes at formation of tumors and their reaction to antineoplastic therapy.
"The Russia's first international school of sciences devoted to
sequencing of single cells began work in Tomsk … 20 young people of the Russian
scientists take part in the school. <...> By means of this approach
scientists plan to obtain new fundamental data that will allow to create
effective test systems for diagnosis of oncological diseases, to reveal them at
early stage", – it is said in the statement.

It is noted that within the school young researchers will listen to
lectures of the leading scientists in the field of cellular sorting, biology of
the circulating tumor cells (CTC), preparation of libraries from single cages
and their sequencing. The format of the event provides also a practical
"Young scientists will be able to get acquainted with operation of
the device 10th Genomics intended for preparation of single cells for
sequencing, and sequencing will be executed on NextSeq500 platform. The data
obtained during sequencing will form a basis for demonstration of modern
methods of the bioinformatics analysis to participants of school", – it is
said in the statement.
In conclusion of work of the international school its participants will
take part in a round table with reports on results of own researches.
