About the event.

In place of our annual single-cell symposium we will be holding a virtual mini-symposium this year, via Zoom.

Single-cell technologies are now widely used but continue to develop rapidly - in this mini-symposium we aim to focus on the “next generation” of tools to study living systems at cellular resolution, including:

  • Long-read/Isoform sequencing
  • Multi-omic analysis
  • Proteomics
  • Spatial transcriptomics

Our annual symposium has been a great platform for discussion between researchers in diverse fields (microbial, plant, biomedical) focussing on the applications of new technologies.

The full symposium will return in 2021.
