Single cell genomics, which is fast emerging as a key revolutionary technology, will transform biological research in the near future. Through its many applications (single cell genome sequencing, single cell transcriptomics, various single cell epigenetic profiling approaches), researchers can characterize the genetic and functional properties of individual cells in their native states. Until recently, this was not something that was even imaginable.  As technology moves forward, many critical questions arise:
• Which technologies are going to set the standard in the field?
• How many cells need to be sampled? How should sampling be designed and optimized?
• How can the behavior of groups of hundreds or thousands of single cells be analyzed and modeled? What is the importance of modeling when precise single-cell-states are available?
• How can single cell genomics and epigenomics be integrated?
• What are the immediate implications to fields like immunology, cancer research and germ cells?
Many of the pioneers and leading experts in the field will be brought together at The Single Cell Genomics Conference. Extensive, interdisciplinary and informal discussion will take place for three days, in the stimulating and beautiful setting of the Weizmann Institute. We aim to create a forum where knowledge is shared, and new agenda for our young single cell community is being defined. The meeting will include presentations from thirty invited leaders and several selected abstracts, a poster session and many opportunities for interaction. We encourage students and postdocs to participate by presenting abstracts (a limited number of registration waivers are available).
Come and join us in this truly exciting time for single cell genomics!
