Danish Single Cell Symposium
This one-day symposium will focus on every aspect of single cell transcriptomics ranging from sample processing to data analysis. Through oral and poster presentations, Danish and international, junior and senior researchers will present their single cell transcriptomics data obtained from various cell cultures, model organisms and human tissues. During the symposium participants will discuss how single cell transcriptomics can be applied to resolve cell heterogeneity in order to identify distinct cell types in complex tissues, to study tissue differentiation and maturation and to identify mechanisms of pathogenesis and disease progression.Read more
