About the event.

Following the success of the inaugural Norwich Single Cell Symposium in 2017, we are delighted to invite you to join us again this year.

Developments in single cell genomics technologies have enabled the dissection of biological processes in unprecedented detail, with broad ranging applications in the study of microbial genomics as well as plant and human health and disease. Technologies enabling the analysis of 100s-1000s of single cells in individual experiments are becoming routine, and the diversity of techniques available to analyse the genomes, epigenomes and transcriptomes of single cells continues to increase at pace.

The Norwich Single Cell Symposium brings together researchers who are curious about single cell genomics and its potential application to their research. The event hosts external speakers presenting advanced single cell research, plus highlights the development of single cell capabilities available at Earlham Institute. The symposium offers up-to-date information, plus networking opportunities with the intention of catalysing future development and application of single cell genomics approaches in the region.

This two-day event will feature talks from invited speakers and EI researchers, covering topics including:

  • Single Cell Genomics in Developmental Biology
  • Single Cell Genomics in Health and Disease
  • Applications of Single Cell Genomics in Plant and Microbial Sciences
  • Analysis of Single Cell Genomics Data
