Join us for a workshop at ESHG 2021 (European Human Genetics Conference 2021)
Customized single-cell multi-omics solutions target clinical challenges
Discover how to use advanced single-cell multi-omics analysis tools to simultaneously analyze tumor genetic variants and microenvironment
Join our Workshop
Sunday, August 29th 2021, 14:00 - 15:00 Central European Summer Time
Prof. Dr. Reinhard Büttner
Director of the Institute of Pathology
University Hospital of Cologne
Single cell analysis approaches are leading to new and impressive insights into complex biological systems, including the unique conditions of the tumour microenvironment. Heterogeneous sample types - such as tumour tissues - commonly harbour cell-specific genetic variants and gene expression profiles, both of which have been shown to be related to the mechanisms of disease development, progression, and responses to treatment.
In this talk, Prof. Büttner will present a recent study of scRNAseq from 42 fresh biopsy samples of advanced non-small cell lung cancer patients, and will shed light on his view towards future precision medicine.
FocuSCOPE: A new multi-omics approach to simultaneously analyze genetic variants and transcriptomics in single cells
Dr. Nan Fang
CEO and founder of Singleron Biotechnologies
Most current high-throughput single cell sequencing methods detect only gene expression levels or epigenetics events such as chromatin conformation. To better decipher the connection between genotype and phenotype at single cell level, we need to develop and utilize new tools.
Dr. Fang will outline a new multi-omics approach for cancer research- FocuSCOPE, which can detect which cells within a tumour carrying a known mutation, and at the same time detect the gene expression in these particular cells. These unique solutions give a completely new dimension to single cell analysis.
15 minutes LIVE Q&A at the end of the workshop, to enable free discussions.
