The UC San Diego Institute for Genomic Medicine held a virtual symposium on Monday, October 26, 2020. This meeting called scientists from across the United States to come together and contribute their cutting-edge ideas on "Spatial Omics.” As a platform for researchers to discuss the latest advancements on spatial gene expression, this meeting strived to glean novel insights into the role cell-type specific regulatory mechanisms play in complex traits. It was in conjunction with the American Society of Human Genetics meeting occurring on October 27th through October 30th, 2020.
