Recent advances in single-cell omics provide an unprecedented opportunity to dissect cellular heterogeneity at the genomic, transcriptomic, epigenomic and protein levels. These technologies are being used to improve our understanding of complex phenotypes relevant to health and disease, to uncover the clonal dynamics of tumours and to characterise circulating tumour cells. Inter-cellular variation also provides data that can be used to uncover intra-cellular interactions and help tease apart regulatory networks and physical complexes. At the same time, these high-resolution measurement technologies present massive challenges in data processing, modelling and interpretation.
Located in a new state of the art research facility housing the Manchester Cancer Research Centre, this workshop aims to bring together biomedical researchers, technological innovators and data scientists working on single-cell omics methodologies and applications.
Workshop speakers include:
Caroline Dive, CRUK Manchester Institute
Peter Kharchenko, Harvard Medical School
Jack Kuipers, ETH Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich
John Marioni, EMBL-EBI Hinxton
