2nd Annual Oxford Global Single Cell Genomics and Transcriptomics Asia Congress 2014

  • Conference Call
  • Oxford Global Con­fer­ences Ltd are proud to present the 2nd Annual Sin­gle Cell Genomics and Tran­scrip­tomics Asia Con­gress 2014, tak­ing place on the 7th and 8th of Octo­ber, 2014 in Sin­ga­pore.

    Thanks to the advances in NGS and whole genome ampli­fi­ca­tion tech­nol­ogy, sci­en­tists can begin to uncover and analyse the dif­fer­ences between sin­gle cells. Researchers are clear that these dif­fer­ences have cru­cial impli­ca­tions for our health, how we are affected by dis­ease and our response to med­i­cine. This two day con­gress will bring together experts from Asia, Aus­trala­sia, Europe and the USA to dis­cuss how to fully exploit the poten­tial of sin­gle cell analysis.

    Day 1 of the event cov­ers all aspects of sin­gle cell genomics, with oppor­tu­ni­ties to dis­cuss such issues as how to improve the length and accu­racy of tran­scrip­tome assem­bly and elim­i­nate sta­tis­ti­cal noise from analy­sis. There will also be case stud­ies demon­strat­ing the util­ity of sin­gle cell analy­sis in diag­nos­tics, with a focus on can­cer and tumour research.

    Day 2 will see our expert speak­ers dis­cussing the lat­est inno­va­tions in sin­gle cell analy­sis tech­nol­ogy. Pre­sen­ta­tions will cover all stages of the sin­gle cell analy­sis work­flow, includ­ing sam­ple prepa­ra­tion tech­nol­ogy, improved meth­ods for sin­gle cell iso­la­tion, reduc­ing the foot­print of analy­sis instru­ments and improved cell imag­ing and data visu­al­iza­tion technology.

    The 2nd Annual Sin­gle Cell Genomics and Tran­scrip­tomics Asia Con­gress will be co-​located with the 4th Annual Next Gen­er­a­tion Sequenc­ing Asia Con­gress.

    Agenda 2014

    In keep­ing with Oxford Global’s highly suc­cess­ful con­gress series, an expert panel of over 20 speak­ers will present a full con­fer­ence pro­gramme cov­er­ing the top­ics out­lined below:

      • Achiev­ing full length tran­scrip­tome assembly
      • Elim­i­nat­ing sta­tis­ti­cal noise from sin­gle cell analysis
      • Demon­strat­ing the diag­nos­tic util­ity of sin­gle cell analysis
      • Sin­gle cell analy­sis case stud­ies: cir­cu­lat­ing tumour cells and can­cer stem cells

    Day 2 – Sin­gle Cell Analy­sis Technologies

    • Improved meth­ods for sin­gle cell isolation
    • Novel sin­gle cell analy­sis technology
      • Flow cytom­e­try

      • Label-​free routes to sin­gle cell analysis

    Who will attend

    The 2nd Annual Sin­gle Cell Genomics and Tran­scrip­tomics Con­gress is a high-​level dis­cus­sion and net­work­ing plat­form for inter­na­tional experts work­ing in sin­gle cell analy­sis, genomic research and tran­scrip­tomic assem­bly. Del­e­gates will include Pro­fes­sors, Direc­tors and lead­ing sci­en­tists work­ing in the fol­low­ing areas:

    • Bioin­for­mat­ics
    • Bio­mark­ers
    • Epi­ge­net­ics
    • Flow cytom­e­try
    • Metabolomics
    • Micro­bial genomics
    • Microflu­idics
    • Next gen­er­a­tion sequencing
    • Pro­teomics
    • Sin­gle cell analysis
    • Sin­gle cell genomics
    • Sin­gle cell imaging
    • Tran­scrip­tomics
    • Whole genome sequencing

    Sub­mit a poster

    For atten­dees inter­ested in sub­mit­ting a poster, there are oppor­tu­ni­ties now avail­able. Your poster pre­sen­ta­tion will be located in the exhi­bi­tion room for two days along­side other posters from senior sci­en­tists from the phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal indus­try and aca­d­e­mic institutions.

    How to sub­mit your abstract

    We will require:
    • Poster title, Abstract (200 words or less)
    • Prin­ci­pal author, Organisation
    • Mail­ing address, Email, Tele­phone, Fax
    • Addi­tional authors

    In order to secure your board space a fee of $250 SGD will be required. The poster should be pre­sented as A0 (841mm x 1189mm) por­trait size.

    To take advan­tage of this oppor­tu­nity you need to be reg­is­tered as a paid del­e­gate over the 2 days. We have lim­ited spaces avail­able, so please reg­is­ter soon!
