Front Line Genomics invites you to their event

Single Cell Biology ONLINE - Webinar 2: Uncovering complex biology with single-cell analysis

About this event

Our latest webinar series: Single Cell Biology ONLINE will help you to monitor changes in cellular composition and how these contribute to some of the world’s most complex diseases and tissues.

Over the next three webinars, you will learn more about approaches to decipher rare cell types and subpopulations of interest in messy single-cell data. You will also gain an understanding of how single-cell approaches are underpinning changes in complex tissues, exemplified with case studies from world-leading researchers in Alzheimer’s, cancer, liver diseases and more.

Register now and you will leave with:

  • A better understanding of approaches developed by your peers to isolate cells of interest.
  • Examples of study design and analysis that demonstrates how to decipher the signal from noisy data of complex tissues, with examples in Alzheimer’s disease.
  • An overview of how single-cell studies are strengthening our understanding of critical processes that are leading to disease onset and progression in a variety of disease areas, and how these insights can be translated into therapeutic opportunities in the future.

The webinar series outline is below. Please note, that by registering for one webinar in the series you will automatically gain access to all subsequent webinars.

Webinar 2: Uncovering complex biology with single-cell analysis

Tuesday 18th July at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

In this webinar, we will cover approaches from both the technological side of single-cell analysis and the advances in bioinformatics that can deconvolute complicated data. It will highlight the strengths of single-cell technologies and how this is paving the way for novel insights into biology.

Webinar 3: Discovering drivers of disease using single-cell approaches

Tuesday 25th July at 3pm BST/ 4pm CET/ 10am EST

There are many diseases by which a single cell can make all the difference. As exemplified by cancer, a devastating disease can start with a genomic change in just a single cell, as can resistance to therapy.

In this webinar, we will be covering insights gained on drivers of disease or evolution of resistance using single-cell analysis.
