About

Rapid recent advances in single-cell technology provide an unprecedented opportunity to understand cellular heterogeneity, genetic substructure, cell-cell interactions and temporal dynamics of complex tissues and tumours. The large volume and complexity of these high dimensional data pose unique statistical and computational challenges. This two-day NSFC/RGC workshop aims to bring together single-cell researchers in Hong Kong, mainland China and beyond to discuss emerging challenges and solutions in single-cell data science in an open and collaborative environment.
