About ASCA

ASCA was founded in 2022 to bring researchers together and to collect and share information for promoting single cell techniques in biology and medicine. The idea to create ASCA was presented at the 3rd Workshop on Single-Cell Sequencing which was held in Tomsk on 23-27 August 2021 and supported by the SkyGen and 10x Genomics companies.

We can help you find like-minded people

Our mission is to increase educational level and scientific communication in the field of single-cell analysis in order to accelerate investigations of biological objects and to understand mechanisms of disease development.

We encourage researchers to contact each other and perform joint projects focusing on the application of single-cell techniques. We believe that such a dynamic field as single-cell analysis allows finding new positions, colleagues, and friends. We invite you to plunge into the amazing world of single-cell science together.


We offer a single platform where manufacturers and suppliers can communicate with researchers, clinicians, and students, promote their products, and get feedback to improve current single-cell technologies.

We want to believe that such cooperation can also result in the development of fundamentally new and simple solutions which will allow using single-cell analysis more widely in research and introducing this into medicine.


The Board is the ASCA’s executive body

«We believe that ASCA will create a link between scientists in the field of single cells. Through communication and transfer of experience, new knowledge will open».
