A revolution is underway, unleashed by the study of single cells, in our understanding of cell identity, diversity, development, and function.  The emerging technologies for single-cell “omics” for the study of genomes, epigenomes, transcriptomes, and proteomes, are becoming increasingly widespread, with some of the most exciting advances enabling multimodal analyses and systems biology assays that perturb and record at single-cell resolution.  Perhaps even more far reaching are single-cell in situ sequencing and imaging-based methods that offer an unparalleled perspective on the biology of individual cells within tissues. The application of this knowledge for precision medicine is also not far from reality, as one can easily imagine a time when a standard blood test or biopsy will include single-cell profiling to aid in diagnosis or to monitor treatment.

The overarching goal of this symposium is to provide a forum for sharing and disseminating cutting-edge technologies, biological insights, and biomedical applications in the field of single-cell analysis.  Come join us in Singapore, a global crossroads and scientific hub, for stimulating discussions and to build bridges between the expanding and interconnected international efforts in single-cell biology.
