ASCB 2019

ASCB 2019

Meet scientists from the Allen Institute for Cell Science at this year's ASCB conference. Visit us at booth #707, attend our Tech Talk, preview our presentations, keep up with us on social media (#ascbembo19), and stop by one of our posters.

12/07/2019 to 12/11/2019

Visit our booth #707

The Allen Institute for Cell Science will host booth 707 in the exhibitor hall where attendees can speak with our scientists and learn about our current and future work.

Be sure and check out the demonstration of our resources in virtual reality, hear about our latest tools like AGAVE and the Allen Cell Structure Segmenter, and ask about our >35 available cell lines.


Tech Talk

Tools to empower your research from the Allen Institute for Cell Science – from cell lines and images to information and models

Date & Time: Sunday, December 8, 2:00-2:45 pm
Location: Theater 1
The Allen Institute for Cell Science is creating an image-based landscape of human induced pluripotent stem cell states and the mechanisms underlying transitions among these states. To do this, the Institute has created publicly available tools for the cell biology community for discovery, analysis, and visualization. These include: 1) genome edited hiPS cell lines for visualizing each of the major structures in epithelial cells and cardiomyocytes, as well as a new set of cell lines for structures in the nucleus, 2) large, high replicate image datasets derived from these cell lines, 3) automation methods for image acquisition, 4) image analysis tools, both computer vision and machine learning, for quantifying structures from 3D images, and 5) new visualization methods. This talk will be an introduction to the resources the Allen Institute makes publicly available through, along with use cases for researchers seeking to leverage the tools in their own labs. Advance registration optional.
