Recent discoveries within Single Cell research have highlighted that cells within a single population may differ significantly, having a major impact on health & cell functions. Advances in Single Cell technologies are enabling researchers to understand the importance of heterogeneity between specific cells in disease research which is expected to revolutionise our understanding of diseases and potential cures.
This two day congress, co-located with the 5th Annual Next Generation Sequencing Asia congress, will bring together over 175 experts from Asia, Australasia, the US and Europe to discuss the substantial potential of Single Cell research in the industry.
On day 1 the conference will be dedicated to understanding Single Cell genomic, transcriptomic and proteomic studies. Our expert speakers will discuss the importance of Single Cell analysis for areas such as CTCs, rare cell diseases, understanding tumour heterogeneity and other clinical applications.
Day 2 will see internationally renowned speakers discussing the latest innovations in single cell analysis tools and technologies including cytometry, fluidics and imaging techniques. Presentations will cover all stages of the single cell analysis workflow, including improved methods for single cell isolation, purification and sample preparation. Presentations will also discuss the issues of single cell data-handling and future perspectives for the industry.
