About the event.

Single-cell genomic technologies continue to develop at pace, generating new insights into cellular diversity within living systems. This event aims to bring together researchers applying single-cell technologies across a wide range of species.

The symposium covers single-cell genomics technologies and their application in microbial, plant, animal and human health and disease. Offering a forum for researchers to discuss the latest developments in single-cell genomics, whilst networking with other researchers with the intention of catalysing future development and application of single-cell genomics across the UK.

The event will 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

Abstracts

We are offering the opportunity to present your research at the symposium, and abstracts should be submitted when you register. We would particularly like to encourage PhD students and early career researchers to submit abstracts, we have reserved plenty of time and space in the schedule to hear from you all!

  • You will present either as a short minute talk, or a poster, and can select your preference during the registration
  • The submission deadline for abstracts is Sunday 1 August 2021
  • 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
