Bits, Photons & Cells: Exploring Novel Technologies to Unravel Cell Dynamics in Zebrafish

Friday, January 12, 2024

Chan Zuckerberg Biohub San Francisco

Join us for an exciting symposium that explores the latest technological advancements to understand cell dynamics in zebrafish.

From omics to microscopy, technological innovation is pushing the limits of observability, allowing us to delve into previously inaccessible insights, thus reshaping our understanding of how cells form organs and tissues. This symposium aims to be a forum to discuss these advances, providing a platform for dialogue, collaboration, and discovery.

The “Bits, Photons & Cells” symposium aims to gather like-minded scientists passionate about creating and applying state-of-the-art technologies and methods. Our focus is on the emergence of cell identity in zebrafish, but the implications reach far beyond this model organism.

Highlights Include:

  • An in-depth look at pioneering tools and datasets developed by the CZ community, such as Zebrahub, CZ CELLxGENE, Napari, Aydin, DaXi, and more. Opportunities for networking and collaboration within an active and engaged scientific community.
  • Hands-on demonstrations, workshops, and discussions led by experts.

Designed to foster collaborative research in a vibrant and innovative setting.

Join us for an inspiring and educational day, where cutting-edge technology meets curiosity and collaboration.
