SCOG Virtual Workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2021’

We are excited to announce our upcoming virtual SCOG workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2021‘.


The two-day workshop, taking place on 20 – 21 October 2021, will be chaired by Jörn Walter (USAAR Saarbrücken) and Maria Colomé-Tatché (HMGU Munich) and will provide an overview of the latest findings and developments in the field of single cell epigenomics.


  • Plenary talks by invited speakers
  • Selected Rapid Fire Talks by partners and members of the network
  • Moderated general discussions
Confirmed Speakers:
  • Andrew Adey (OHSU Portland, US)
  • Catherine A. Blish (Stanford University, US)
  • Gonçalo Castelo-Branco (Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, SE)
