The Single-Cell Genomics GRC is a premier, international scientific conference focused on advancing the frontiers of science through the presentation of cutting-edge and unpublished research, prioritizing time for discussion after each talk and fostering informal interactions among scientists of all career stages. The conference program includes a diverse range of speakers and discussion leaders from institutions and organizations worldwide, concentrating on the latest developments in the field. The conference is five days long and held in a remote location to increase the sense of camaraderie and create scientific communities, with lasting collaborations and friendships. In addition to premier talks, the conference has designated time for poster sessions from individuals of all career stages, and afternoon free time and communal meals allow for informal networking opportunities with leaders in the field.

In human and other living organisms, tissue functions arise from collective actions of many different types of cells. Inside cells, thousands of genes form complex interaction networks to give rise to cellular functions. Recent technological developments have made it possible to characterize individual cells at the genome scale and in the spatial context of intact tissues. A variety of single-cell and spatial omics methods have emerged to allow the measurement of genomic, epigenomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and metabolomic properties of cells with single-cell sensitivity and/or high spatial resolution. These techniques have been broadly applied to elucidate biological or medical questions ranging from embryonic development to aging, from autoimmune disease to cancer, from cognitive science to neurological disorders, and so forth, touching upon nearly every corner of basic and clinical research. This conference seeks to bring together thought leaders in life sciences and medicine with innovators in single-cell and spatial technologies under the same roof to discuss latest technology developments in the field, the prospects of single-cell and spatial technologies to expedite biological discoveries at an unprecedented scale, and the translation of new findings to diagnostics, therapeutics, and precision medicine.
