2014 Annual Symposium of the Institute for Genomic Medicine

In partnership with presents:
Genomics of the Single Cell
Friday, October 17, 2014

8:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m.
Duane L. Roth Auditorium
Sanford Consortium for Regenerative Medicine
University of California, San Diego

The behavior of a complex biological system such as a tumor, a microbiome or a human brain reflects the identities and behaviors of thousands to billions of individual cells. Using new single-cell methodologies and analytics, science is beginning to unravel this complexity. It is now possible to dissect the genetic, transcriptomic and proteomic composition of thousands of single cells in parallel and at unprecedented molecular resolution. The result has been an explosion of new information on genetic mechanisms underlying development and human disease.

The 4th symposium of the Institute for Genomic Medicine (IGM) at UC San Diego features leaders in the field of single cell genomics from academia and industry.
