Corner 4 Methodology is the session devoted to presentation of novel methods and protocols in the life science research. Life scientists are constantly presented with a variety of methodological advancements available for their research. Novel methods and protocols are published on a daily basis, making it an exciting area of development. Many of these techniques harbor potential to significantly increase our knowledge of cellular and molecular interactions and dynamic processes, but also create novel opportunities for scientists to explore aspects of biological and chemical diversity that cannot be accessed through natural mechanisms or processes.

Corner 4 Methodology highlights methodologies likely to have high impact on the life science research in the near future, illustrates the general principles they are based on, and indicates how and why these methodologies may and should be used in research and technology. The session will include talks about comprehensive two-dimensional gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), flow cytometry, spectroscopy and CRISPR/Cas9 genome editing.
