About the event.

Single cell genomic technologies continue to develop at pace, generating new insights into cellular diversity within living systems. The Norwich Single Cell Symposium, hosted annually at EI, aims to bring together researchers applying single cell technologies across a wide range of species.

Now in its third year, the Symposium covers single-cell genomics technologies and their application in microbial, plant, animal and human health and disease. The symposium offers a forum for researchers to discuss the latest developments in single-cell genomics, and network with other researchers with the intention of catalysing future development and application of single-cell genomics across the UK.

This year, the event will take place over two days and feature talks from invited speakers and selected abstracts, and we are keen to capture as broad a range of single-cell applications as possible.

Topics to be covered include:

  • Single cell genomics in plant and microbial research
  • Single cell genomics in health, disease and development
  • Single cell informatics
  • Single cell technology development


This year we are offering the opportunity to present posters on your research during the canapes and networking session. Submission deadline for abstracts is 1 September 2019 (23.59 GMT).

All abstracts must be submitted electronically as part of your registration. Submissions via email will not be accepted

Abstract limits are 250 words (excluding title, authors and affiliations)

Presenting author should be highlighted in bold

Abstracts will be reviewed within 14 days of the submission deadline and you will be informed of the outcome shortly thereafter
