Driven by biotechnological developments that enable single-cell handling and measurements on a genome-wide scale, single-cell profiles are now generated widely and rapidly. Single-cell approaches allow for probing biological systems at an unprecedented level of detail. For the first time, we can manipulate single cells and investigate variation among individual cells and inter-cellular interactions on the molecular level.

This interdisciplinary workshop is intended to be a forum for the dissemination of cutting-edge biotechnological and computational developments and the identification of open data analysis problems and solutions. Targeted areas for the workshop include: novel experimental techniques for single-cell analysis, statistical models of cell-to-cell variation, data integration, and applications of single-cell genomics to somatic variation in development and disease.
