If you have a question about this talk, please contact Sharon Connor.

DNA exists as single molecules in an individual cell. The fact that there are 46 different individual DNA molecules (chromosomes) in a human cell dictates that genomic variations occur stochastically and cannot be synchronized among individual cells. Probing single nucleotide variations and copy number variations in the single cell level has become possible recently, opening opportunities to study the genesis of cancer and to avoid genetic disorders in newborns.
