European Single-Cell User Meeting

13-14 September 2016 | Hinxton, UK
Wellcome Genome Campus Conference Centre 

Single-cell analysis is revolutionising research.
Join us the day before the Single Cell Genomics meeting and hear how experts from across Europe are using single-cell methods to achieve new breakthroughs in the understanding of normal development, disease progression and the effects of therapeutic treatment. Network with single-cell enthusiasts in a relaxed atmosphere and collaborate on new single-cell applications and workflows across a range of research areas.

Interested to learn how enabling systems-level biology at single-cell resolution can help you accomplish more for your research?

Reserve your place now. Registration closes on 25 August.
