EMBL Courses and Conferences during the Coronavirus pandemic

With the onsite programme paused, many of our events are now being offered in virtual formats.

Registration is open as usual for many events, with back-up plans in place to move further courses and conferences online as necessary. Registration fees for any events affected by the COVID-19 disruption are fully refundable.

More information for participants of events at EMBL Heidelberg can be found here.

Lunchtime Workshop

The following optional workshop will be hosted by the conference sponsor 10x Genomics during the lunch break on Thursday at the EMBO I EMBL Symposium: The Identity and Evolution of Cell Types

Reveal the Full Complexity of Cellular Diversity
with Single Cell Transcriptomics

Date: Thursday, 16 May 2019 from 12:30 to 13:15.
Venue: Helix Seminar Room B01, EMBL Advanced Training Centre


Unraveling cell diversity and fate requires the ability to identify gene expression profiles, trace cellular lineage, and profile cell subtypes. Biased cellular analysis and pooled samples has limited developmental biology research and contributed to the masking of dynamic cellular events. Single cell analysis can provide novel insight into the molecular mechanisms underlying both normal cellular function and disease states.
Single cell sequencing technologies from 10x Genomics provide comprehensive, scalable solutions for cell characterization and gene expression profiling of hundreds to tens of thousands of cells, without a need for prior knowledge of cell types or markers. Explore our newest single cell technologies such as the Single Cell ATAC Solution and Single Cell Gene Expression Solution with Feature Barcoding technology.


Presenter: Katharina Danielski, Field Application Scientist, 10x Genomics

All conference participants will receive an email with a registration link. 

Participation in the workshop is first come - first served.
