Understanding Cellular Heterogeneity

From techniques such as microscopy and FACS analysis, we know that many cell populations harbour heterogeneity in morphology and protein expression. With the advent of high throughput single cell RNA-sequencing, we can now quantify transcriptomic cell-to-cell variation. I will discuss technical advances and biological insights into understanding cellular heterogeneity in T cells and ES cells using single cell RNA-sequencing.

SUBMIT YOUR ABSTRACT

You can submit your abstract to present your research @QuantGen16

The deadline for submitting abstracts is over!

If you submitted an abstract, you should have received an email. If not, please contact the organisers!

You are required to confirm your presentation, if your abstract has been accepted. Otherwise, we consider your presentation as cancelled.

We are currently working to establish a schedule and the times for each presentation.

Posters typically are in size DIN A0 or A1. If your poster is in A0 format, please use portrait format (upright, height longer than width), as you will be sharing poster boards where space may be limited.

A short podium talk is like a long podium talk, but shorter.

5 minutes, without time for Q&A. You can answer all questions during our networking sessions.

On the day of the conference, please provide a Powerpoint file or a PDF file on a USB stick or via email to the organisers.

A long podium talk is like a short podium talk, but longer.

12 minutes talk + 3 minutes for Q&A.

On the day of the conference, please provide a Powerpoint file or a PDF file on a USB stick or via email to the organisers.

Abstract submission is closed!
