The one-day virtual workshop took place on February 10, 2021, and was hosted by SCOG founders Nikolaus Rajewsky (BIMSB/MDC, Berlin) and Fabian Theis (ICB/HMGU, Munich). The event provided an overview of the latest findings and developments in the field of “Spatial Single Cell Analysis” which was recently announced as “Method of the Year 2020” by the journal Nature Methods.
Highly renowned international experts in the field of spatial single cell analysis and spatially resolved transcriptomics presented their ongoing research to more than 700 participants in two sessions. At the end of each session, attendees had the opportunity to ask questions to the speakers of the respective session in a panel discussion format. A lively discussion emerged and was continued afterwards in the chat and on Twitter. Very positive feedback from both speakers and participants confirmed the success of this event. The recordings of both sessions can be found on both our website and YouTube channel.
