1st ASHBi SignAC workshop 2021

We are pleased to announce that the 1st ASHBi SignAC Workshop 2021 will be held online on 19 February, 2021. This workshop aims to overview the current status of single-cell biology from various aspects. The scopes include recent technological innovations and the application of single-cell approaches to fundamental biological questions. We expect the workshop will stimulate new ideas for future studies by the participants.
