Hindsight 2020 – The Allen Institute Developmental Recording Symposium
March 3 - 5, 2020
Join us March 3-5, 2020 at the Allen Institute for Hindsight 2020 – The Allen Institute Developmental Recording Symposium, a meeting featuring the latest insights from leading researchers in the fields of cell lineage and developmental recording, chaired by Jay Shendure, M.D., Ph.D. and Michael Elowitz, Ph.D., of the Allen Discovery Center at UW Medicine.
Understanding the lineages and molecular histories of individual cells is fundamental to understanding development and disease in multicellular organisms. Advances in genome engineering, genome editing, synthetic biology, single cell sequencing, and molecular imaging are enabling revolutionary approaches in which cells actively record their own histories to their genomes. These approaches are beginning to provide new insights into diverse developmental and disease processes. Hindsight 2020 will bring together researchers working on all aspects of this new field from technology development to biological inquiry. Winners of the Allen Institute Cell Lineage Reconstruction DREAM Challenge will also be announced at the event.
