Recent advances in single-cell technologies have provided unprecedented -omic-level insights into cellular heterogeneity and function. Methods for single-cell genomic, transcriptomic, and epigenomic studies are emerging at a rapid pace and contributing to a better understanding of the complexity of biological systems.
Single-cell proteomics promises to build a much more complete picture of cellular identity, because proteins directly carry out cellular function. But the field faces many challenges, largely due to the lack of direct amplification that is possible with nucleic acids.
This Virtual Roundtable discussion will bring together a panel of experts in the field of single-cell proteomics to discuss the latest advances in the field and obstacles to its progress. They will also discuss the role of single-cell proteomics within the context of emerging integrative disciplines, such as single-cell multiomics studies and spatial biology.
