Organizer: University of Cambridge

Host institution: University of Cambridge Bioinformatics Training

Start: Thursday, 16 March 2017 @ 09:30

End: Friday, 17 March 2017 @ 17:00

Venue: Craik-Marshall Building

City: Cambridge

Country: United Kingdom

Postcode: CB2 3AR

Scientific topic: Transcriptomics, Functional genomics, Data visualisation, Data mining, Bioinformatics

Target audience:
  • Graduate students
  • Postdocs and Staff members from the University of Cambridge
  • Institutions and other external Institutions or individuals
Description:

Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging.

In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq.

The course website providing links to the course materials can be found here.
