ABRF Workshop: Single-cell ‘omics – Technologies and Applications (DAY 1)
October 20, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
This is a special online workshop with ABRF. This two day event takes places from 2:00pm-4:00pm on October 20th and 22nd
ABRF Members – $25
Non-Members – $50
Biologists have worked with tissues and organs for centuries and come to realize that important biological information in different specific cells is missed when using tissues or organs. Nowadays, work on the basic unit of life, cells, has started to show great promise to provide unique insights into fundamental biological processes (e.g., cancer cell development) and to improve targeted therapies. Understanding how different cells work is at the frontier and exciting direction of biomedical research.
With the latest development of 10xGenomics-based single-cell RNA sequencing, microchip-based single-cell ‘omics as well as sensitive mass spectrometry-based single cell-type proteomics and metabolomics, it is high time to expose ABRF attendees to this exciting topic of single-cell ‘omics: technologies and applications
There are many types of cells, and great progress has been made in different animal, human and plant cells. The satellite workshop topics can cover a wide range of biological processes (e.g., cancer cell development and crop stress response), different levels of information flow (e.g., transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics) and data integration, modeling and prediction (e.g., cell-type specific systems biology). A lot of ABRF attendees will be attracted to these hot topics. They are not only about the new technological breakthroughs, but also most importantly about the applications in addressing important biological and medical questions through ‘omics driven systems biology approaches involving iterative hypothesis generation and hypothesis testing.
Join us for this interactive session which will address:
- Recognizing current problems and challenges in biomedical research: missing single-cell information
- Understanding basic concepts of single-cell ‘omics at different levels and the new technological developments
- Learning how the new technologies can be applied to address current problems and challenges in different areas of biological and medical research
- Discussing and sharing experiences for how core facilities can play an essential role in facilitating/providing customer services in single-cell ‘omics
This time is set to Eastern Daylight Time (EDT), or UTC -4:00
