HUMAN CELL ATLAS ASIA MEETING 2020

A virtual meeting hosted by HCA Asia, October 22nd-23rd 2020

2020 Human Cell Atlas Asia "virtual" meeting


Dates: 22nd-23rd October 2020, Beijing Time (GMT +8:00)


Organizers and Supporters: Human Cell Atlas, Zhejiang University, Peking University, Tsinghua University, Chinese Academy of Sciences


Description: The Human Cell Atlas Project brings together an international community of biologists, clinicians, technologists, physicists, computational scientists, software engineers, and mathematicians. This community of scientists with diverse expertise share the common goal of creating a comprehensive reference map of all human cells as a basis for understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. Without maps of different cell types, where they are located in the body, and the genes they express, we cannot describe all cellular activities and understand the biological networks that direct them. Very recently, new tools, such as single-cell genomics, have for the first time put this goal within reach. In order to coordinate efforts and share scientific updates, HCA meetings are hosted regularly by participant institutions throughout the world.

2020 Human Cell Atlas Asia "virtual" meeting will discuss about the making of the Human Cell Atlas, particularly among the scientific community in Asia. We will cover trending topics such as COVID-19 related cell atlas research, technology development, computational analysis, cancer cell atlas, developmental atlas, genetic diversity and atlas integration. The ZOOM meeting registration is completely FREE.
