Single-cell omics symposium is a one day event to gather together researchers working on single-cell techniques in different fields such as cancer research, immunology and metagenomics. The aim of the symposium is to give an overview of the latest technologies in genomics, single-cell transcriptomics and proteomics as well as to present how these techniques, available at the Single-cell Omics unit at TCB, can be exploited in various different fields of research. More details of the event from the symposium flyer.
