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


We welcome abstract submissions from all delegates, both early career researchers and experienced. Abstracts should include a title, list of authors with presenting author in bold, affiliations for authors and the main body of the abstract must be no longer than 250 words.

Abstracts must be submitted in one of the following file formats: .doc .docx .pdf to training@earlham.ac.uk

Deadline for abstract submission is: Friday 4th May at 23:59 BST.

Abstracts will be reviewed and successful authors will be contacted by Wednesday 9th May. Abstracts will be selected based on scientific merit and complementarity to the symposium themes.

Successful authors will be given a 15 minute slot comprising of 12 minute presentation and 3 minutes for questions. Speakers will be asked to send their presentation in advance, plus to bring a backup copy of the presentation in an appropriate format (either USB or accessible from a download site).
