5th Meeting of the Single Cell Center Heidelberg
Posted March 08 2019
Thursday 14 March 2019, 14:00 - 17:30 at EMBL Operon, Meyerhofstr. 1, Heidelberg.

We are please to invite you to the 5th Meeting of the Single Cell Center Heidelberg (SCC HD) entitled "New methods and readouts for single cell analysis".





Bus to EMBL: 13:30 hour, leaving in front of the main entrance of the Bioquant (INF 267, pre-registration required with Sofie Steinfest, s.steinfest [ aT ]


Rapid advances in single cell genomics provides powerful new ways to dissect different layers of genomic information, giving new views of cellular identity and function at a single cell level. This is enabling exciting new opportunities to dissect developmental and disease trajectories, cellular heterogeneity within complex tissues, cellular responses to environmental and genetic variation, and disease states. Many of these technologies are still in flux, with very sparse data and rapidly evolving protocols, which provide many new opportunities but also challenges to develop, optimize and standardise these approaches.

Many groups within Heidelberg, at the EMBL, DKFZ and University, are using these approaches to dissect different aspects of development and disease states.


The aim of the center is to foster interactions and exchange of expertise (both experimental and computational), promote collaborations between groups at different sites, increase the visibility of groups using single cell sequencing approaches at the national and international level.
