The 3rd ASHBi SignAC Workshop: High-content epigenome analysis in the next phase

ASHBi will hold the ASHBi SignAC Workshop: High-content epigenome analysis in the next phase on 15 May 2024

The epigenomic state of individual cells is controlled across multiple dimensions, and elucidating this state requires the integration of various analytical techniques. In this workshop, we will focus on remarkable advancements in such analytical techniques, including long-range genomic DNA molecule analysis, spatial analysis techniques, and temporal change analysis techniques, inviting leading researchers from both domestic and international fields to lecture. We will then discuss the prospects for the future integration of these analytical techniques.
