We are pleased to invite you to the 4th workshop of the Single Cell Center Heidelberg entitled "Linking single cell transcriptomes and phenotypes in their cellular context" (see program here).

The workshop will take place on Thursday 13 Dec 2018, 14:00 to 17:30 hrs in Bioquant (INF 267), Seminar Room 41 on the ground floor.

In order to give us an idea on the expected number of participants, we would ask you to send an e-mail notification to Sofie Steinfest (s.steinfest [ aT ] if you plan to attend the workshop.


Rapid advances in single cell genomics provides powerful new ways to dissect different layers of genomic information, giving new views of cellular identity and function at a single cell level. This is enabling exciting new opportunities to dissect developmental and disease trajectories, cellular heterogeneity within complex tissues, cellular responses to environmental and genetic variation, and disease states. Many of these technologies are still in flux, with very sparse data and rapidly evolving protocols, which provide many new opportunities but also challenges to develop, optimize and standardise these approaches.


Many groups within Heidelberg, at the EMBL, DKFZ and University, are using these approaches to dissect different aspects of development and disease states.
