Session Description: Recent advances in transcriptomics have shown that gene expression states vary tremendously from cell to cell. This variation is essential in development where the specification of fate depends on controlled heterogeneity. In cancer, genetic and epigenetic changes results in highly heterogeneous expression states despite clonal origins. This session will present the emerging single-cell technologies in transcriptomics and epigenomics, data analysis pipeline, and the biological significance of these data.
