Event Overview

The immune system possesses a plasticity that allows it to adapt to shifting threats. This plasticity is driven by cellular heterogeneity—where immune cells adopt different genotypes and phenotypes based on internal and external signaling. Often, small cellular subsets are instrumental in driving immune responses in health and disease. Single cell methods provide a high-resolution view into these subsets and individual cells rather than composites or averages from many cells. Moreover, multiomic profiling of simultaneous readouts, such as gene expression, cell surface proteins, and receptor sequences, from the same cell allow for more refined and robust characterization of these highly heterogeneous cell populations.

In this virtual symposium, brought to you by 10x Genomics, an expert panel will examine how single cell multiomic techniques shape the understanding of immune cell heterogeneity and immune function.
