The 1st Single Cell Genomics Symposium will take place on February 17th & 18th 2022 at the PRBB Auditorium (Barcelona, Spain), and the CRG and the IRB Barcelona (two BIST Centre) are part of the organising committee
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. This event aims to bring together researchers from Barcelona working in that discipline and global leaders of the field in order to foster new local and international research alliances. It is co-organized by three of Barcelona’s leading centres for genomic and biomedical research, the Centre for Genomic Regulation (CRG), the Institute for Research in Biomedicine (IRB Barcelona) and the José Carreras Leukaemia Research Institute (JCI).
