Bio/chemical Approaches for Single Cell Biosensing Technologies (#257)

Single cells are the building blocks of living organisms. Sensing the activities of single cells and the biomolecular reactions that occur within them are key for addressing various fundamental biological questions. Over the past decade, there have been great advances in biosensing technologies for highly sensitive measurement of various biomolecules from cell, tissue and living body. The emerging field of biosensors seeks to exploit biochemistry in conjunction with single cell analysis in bio/medical research and diagnostics. Our symposium will focus on the recent and cutting edge developments for chemistry oriented biotechnological topics which are related to biosenesing technologies such as molecular recognition, nanomaterials, bioelectorochemistry, biophotonics, bioelectronics, so on. Topics in this session will also include new insights on intracellular processes, cellular diversity and developmental mechanisms of life gained with the aid of single-cell analysis. The symposium will also include recent advancements and applications in quantitative and comprehensive single-cell analysis including gene expression analysis, sequencing, imaging, flow cytometry, mass spectrometry, Raman spectrometry, microfluidics and biomaterials.
