EMBO Workshop: Unravelling Biological Secrets by Single-Cell Expression Profiling

25 Sep 2014 - 26 Sep 2014 - Heidelberg, Germany



Bookmark and Share


This compact, interactive meeting is dedicated to promoting networking and collaboration opportunities for early stage researchers, focusing on novel technologies and unraveling biological questions.

Recent studies have demonstrated that the top-down approach of studying a group of cells of the same type in order to infer what is happening in an individual cell is wrong. The differences among cells of the same population are often dramatic and so too can be the consequences arising from it. Recently, new technological advances make it possible to have high resolution genomic and transcriptomic investigations at the single-cell level. This has led to the implementation of single-cell methods across a plethora of research fields. 

Aims

This workshop aims at presenting these breakthrough advances to scientists from different fields and creating a focused platform where they can listen, present and discuss relevant biological findings that have been made or can be achieved through these approaches. 

The workshop will mainly be divided into two sessions

1. Novel technologies

2. Unravelling biological questions

The organisers, who have attended conferences in this field, want to specifically promote a smaller, interactive meeting mainly dedicated to promote networking and collaboration opportunities for early stage researchers.
