Diversity, Ecology and Evolution of Microbes
UNICELL platform

UNICELL is a research platform created by the DEEM team and set up in a clean room (ISO5/ISO7) for the production of genomes and transcriptomes of single cells from complex microbial communities.

We aim at developing and implementing adapted protocols for genome and trancriptome amplification from prokaryotes (archaea, bacteria) and unicellular eukaryotes (protists). Other single-cell applications for microorganisms can also be considered.
