Single-Cell Omics Network (SCON)

A collaborative effort to foster and support research on single-cell projects.

We are a community of researchers around Sydney who strive to improve the quality of research through discussions of all forms of single-cell modalities, whether it be wet-lab methodologies or computational analyses. 

We aim to have monthly meetings where researchers get a chance to present their work, discuss shared challenges and solutions, and evaluate papers and technologies related to the single-cell field. 

Occasionally, research leaders will come and give a talk on their work. We hope to create a friendly round table where everyone can discuss any ideas or problems they have.

Everyone is welcome.
