We are pleased to announce the fifth US-based Single Cell Analyses Meeting, which will be held at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, New York. The meeting will begin with dinner and an evening session on Wednesday November 8, and conclude with lunch on Saturday, November 11, 2017.

The CSHL Single Cell Analyses meeting is the oldest single cell biology meeting as this year will mark its 9th  anniversary. Throughout the years, this meeting alternates its host location between US and CSHL China. This meeting assembles leaders in the field, together with junior faculty, postdoctoral fellows and graduate students, to discuss new, cutting-edge developments and techniques in single cell analysis in bacterial, yeast, plant and animal systems.  

This year’s meeting will discuss the following topics:
  • Evolution and Single Cell Biology
  • Single Cell Multi-Omics
  • Single Cell Nucleome and Epigenome
  • Standards and Benchmarks for Single Cell Biology
  • Limits of Measurement and New Technologies

Please bring this notice to the attention of any of your colleagues who may be interested in participating in the meeting.

All abstracts must be submitted by the abstract deadline. Late registrations may be accepted after the abstract deadline if the meeting is not oversubscribed. In the event of over-subscription, every effort will be made to ensure that all groups who wish to participate will be represented. The status (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. We have applied for funds from government and industry to partially support graduate students and postdocs. Please apply in writing via email to Vivian Vuong and state your financial needs; preference will be given to those who submit abstracts.
