Symposium — Sunday, April 23, 2017 — 3:15 PM - 5:15 PM — , Room W194B
Physiological Genomics Group — Chair: Hilary Coller — Co-Chair:
The capacity to analyze data from single cells has changed our understanding of biology and made us realize that individual cells within a population can vary greatly for any given parameter. This intercellular heterogeneity is easily missed by experiments that only analyze cellular pools. The heterogeneity of cells can, in some cases, be a critical driver for our understanding of the biological behavior of the population. This symposium will discuss methods for single cell analysis and the latest findings using these approaches in a variety of model systems.
