Understanding Cancer Evolution Through the Lens of Single Cell Genomics

Totally Free WebinarThursday, December 2, 202111:00 AM – 12:30 PM Eastern TimeRegister NowCancer progresses by getting anomalies that increase cell survival. Sequencing single cells from a heterogeneous tumor mass and its metastases supplies specific pictures that show this evolutionary process, allowing researchers to identify anomalies that drive cancer cell development. In this webinar, Nicholas Navin and Lars Velten will discuss the significance of studying clonal cancer cell evolution, how single cell analysis assists researchers identify cancer chauffeur gene mutations, and the potential opened by recent discoveries in the field.Topics to be coveredSingle cell innovations to study the co-evolution of cancer cells and their microenvironment during breast cancer progressionIdentifying leukemic cancer stem cells with single cell multiomics and clonal trackingRegister NowMeet the Speakers: Nicholas Navin, PhDProfessorDepartments of Genetics and BioinformaticsDirector, CPRIT Single Cell coreCo-director, Advanced Genomic Technology CenterThe University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer CenterLars Velten, PhDGroup LeaderBioinformatics and Genomics Research ProgrammeCentre for Genomic Regulation
