Single Cell Analysis

Program Snapshot

Many biological experiments are performed on groups of cells, under the assumption that all cells of a particular “type” are identical. However, recent evidence from studies of single cells reveals that this assumption is incorrect. Individual cells within the same population may differ dramatically, and these differences can have important consequences for the health and function of the entire population.



Program Highlights

The Annual Single Cell Analysis Investigators Meeting is scheduled for April 15-16, 2013. Please save the date!

The Single Cell Analysis Meeting will feature presentations and posters on the burgeoning field of Single Cell Analysis by funded grantees and invited speakers. Location, registration and additional details are forthcoming.
