Innovations in Single Cell Omics

27th and 28th of May 2024
Barcelona

The human body consists of trillions of cells, but a mutation in one of them can cause cancer.

This example demonstrates that biology is not a process driven by averages and highlights the importance of single cell-level studies. The last years have seen a rapid expansion of the field of single-cell genomics, which has enabled paradigm shifts in many fields of biological sciences, ranging from evolutionary biology over stem cell biology to cancer research. 

The ISCO conference  is co-organized by leading  centres  for  genomic and  biomedical  research in  Berlin and Barcelona and brings together  young  single cell researchers from different disciplines to  enable scientific exchange and  foster new international collaborations. Topics are innovations in single-cell and spatially-resolved technologies, new computational approaches and applications in the medical arena. ISCO puts special emphasis on providing networking opportunities for PhD students and postdocs, with a large number of talks from selected abstract, a poster session and a proper party.

This year’s 3rd edition of ISCO is back in Barcelona.
