Single Cell Genomics Symposium
The human body consists of trillions of cells, but a mutation in one of them can cause cancer. This example demonstrates that biology is not a process driven by averages and highlights the importance of single cell-level studies. The last years have seen a rapid expansion of the field of single-cell genomics, which has enabled paradigm shifts in many fields of biological sciences, ranging from evolutionary biology over stem cell biology to cancer research.
This event aims to bring together researchers from Barcelona working in that discipline and global leaders of the field in order to foster new local and international research alliances.
It is co-organized by three of Barcelona’s leading centres for genomic and biomedical research: the Josep Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (IJC), the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG) and the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB).
Registration and abstract submission will be open soon. Stay tuned!
