Virtual SCOG workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2020’

We are excited to announce our SCOG workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2020’ taking place as a virtual event this year due to the current situation.


The one-day workshop, taking place on November 17 2020, will be hosted by Jörn Walter (Saarland University) and will provide an overview of the latest findings and developments in the field of single cell epigenomics.

Confirmed Speakers:

  • Jop Kind (Hubrecht Institute, Utrecht),
  • Alexander Meissner (MPI of Molecular Genetics, Berlin),
  • Amos Tanay (Weizmann Institute, Revohot),
  • Fuchou Tang (Peking University) and
