Frontiers in Single Cell Genomics



We are pleased to announce the Cold Spring Harbor Asia conference on Frontiers in Single Cell Genomics which will be held in Suzhou, China, located approximately 60 miles west of Shanghai. The conference will begin at 7:00pm on the evening of Monday November 7, and will conclude after lunch on November 11, 2016.

This conference will bring together international leaders to discuss the latest cutting-edge developments in single cell DNA, RNA and Epigenetic technologies and their application to studying fundamental biology and human diseases in eight oral sessions and one poster session. Many talks will be selected from the openly submitted abstracts on the basis of scientific merit and relevance. Social events throughout the conference provide ample opportunity for informal interactions.

We encourage abstracts to contain new and unpublished materials. The abstracts must be submitted electronically by the abstract deadline. Selection of material for oral and poster presentation will be made by the organizers. Status (fellow’s talk/poster) of abstracts will be posted on our web site as soon as decisions have been made by the organizers.

We are eager to have as many young people as possible attend since they are likely to benefit most from this meeting. A certain number of presentations by graduate students and postdocs in this conference will be selected as fellowship (USD $100-$500) awards.
