Single-Cell Phenotypic Analysis: Breaking the Law of Averages

The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their experience with single-cell phenotypic analysis and to reflect on the clarity it provides. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Population-scale cellular analysis has provided many valuable insights into general trends of cell behavior and expression, but rare and low-level events can get lost in the lysate. Averaging the signals from an entire culture can drown out the least prevalent but most important phenotypes. That’s why single-cell analysis has made such an impact, enabling higher throughputs, rare-event detection, and more-precise and meaningful analyses. To explore this exciting new frontier, The Scientist is bringing together a panel of experts to share their experience with single-cell phenotypic analysis and to reflect on the clarity it provides. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the experts, ask questions, and seek advice on topics that are related to their research.

Topics to be covered:

  • Quantitative analysis of cell phenotype at the single-cell level
  • Interpreting phenotypic data for optimal value
