Bookmark and Share

This congress will bring together experts in single cell genomics and transcriptomics for high level networking and discussion opportunities. Delegates will benefit from the opportunity to: Meet with key innovators in single cell analysis. Previous attendees include: Principal Scientist, Pfizer; Professor, School of Biotechnology, Sweden; Executive Director, Sengenics Asia. Discover collaborative solutions to single cell analysis challenges. This congress brings together experts to compare methods for achieving full length transcriptome assembly, clinically effective single cell based diagnostics and more accurate analysis. Discuss the latest innovations in single cell analysis, including improved microfluidic technology and advanced methods for single cell isolation, sample preparation and data visualization. Access unparalleled networking opportunities. The two-day congress format combines dedicated networking breaks, pre-organised 1-2-1 meetings and our popular drinks reception. The exhibition hall and poster presentation spaces offer a relaxed and professional environment for discussion. Enjoy a high quality programme devised with the help of our esteemed advisory board. Presentations will cover areas including single cell imaging, flow cytometry and other innovative single cell analysis technologies. The Single Cell Genomics and Transcriptomics Asia Congress will be co-located with the 4th Annual Next Generation Sequencing Asia Congress.
