The members of the Laboratory of Gene expression helped to organize the Single Cell Europe 2018 conference - the first specialized meeting for single cell analysis in Central Europe. More than 180 participants heard presentations from world leading scientists from various areas in the single cell field. Innovative companies exhibited their latest products and technologies for single cell analysis and participants had the opportunity to participate in hands-on training using state-of-the-art technologies for single cell expression profiling. It was an excellent opportunity for networking and finding collaborators in this rapidly developing field. Many thanks to all participants and companies for their support!
