General Information

We are pleased to announce the third Single Cell Biology conference. This meeting will provide a forum for biologists, methods developers and computational modellers interested in understanding biology at single cell resolution.

The cell represents one of the fundamental units of biology, yet only recently has it become possible to carry out comprehensive molecular profiling at single cell resolution. Coupled with appropriate functional experiments, this technological revolution heralds a new era of biology, which is widely expected to generate major advances in our understanding of normal tissue development and homeostasis, immunity and infection as well as tissue pathologies including cancer.

This year’s meeting will discuss the biological insights gained from imaging and single cell genomics, particularly in immunology, neurobiology, development and disease. A further focus will be on methods, including computational approaches.

The conference sessions will be held each afternoon starting from ~1pm (GMT) from 9 November to 12 November 2020.

Topics will include:

  • Dissecting development
  • Mapping and modelling development
  • Live cell dynamics
  • Spatial technology
  • Computational approaches
  • Disease

Deadline for submissions: closed
