Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Single cell and Spatial Omics ONLINE - Webinar 1: Single-cell meets spatial biology

About this event

Cellular heterogeneity underpins many of life’s processes, from normal development to the onset of disease. Since the advent of single-cell sequencing, cellular heterogeneity has been heavily studied in the search for novel insights into disease onset. Coupled with spatial context in tissue samples, the granularity of this research has reached even finer details.

In the next series of Single-cell and Spatial Omics ONLINE, we delve into the advances in single-cell and spatial sequencing capabilities, highlight key areas of research and showcase how improvements to the workflow can accelerate discoveries.

Webinar 1: Single-cell meets spatial biology

Tuesday, 7th December, 3pm GMT/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

For many, the addition of spatial context into single-cell studies has transformed research. This webinar will focus on the motivations of incorporating spatial context and improving the analysis for a better understanding of tissue architecture.
