This course is now full with a waiting list.
Due to the COVID-19 situation, this course will be streamed only for the registered participants.
In recent years, single-cell transcriptomics has become a widely used technology to study heterogeneous and dynamic biological systems. A large number of new tools and approaches have been developed for analyzing this new type of data. This course aims at discussing a selection of more advanced topics in single-cell transcriptomics data analysis, such as methods that are still being actively developed and go beyond the classical and well established analysis workflows. The typical steps in single-cell transcriptomics analysis will not be covered in this course and familiarity with them is considered a prerequisite.
This course is intended for computational biologists who are already familiar with single-cell transcriptomics analysis, who wish to learn about ongoing and future developments in the field.
At the end of the course attendees will:
Attendees should have a computer with a reliable connection to the internet that is equipped for video conferencing (headset or microphone/speakers, webcam). A browser (firefox or chrome are recommended) and Zoom have to be pre-installed. An online R / RStudio and python environment will be provided.
In order to provide active support and interactions, the number of participants to this course is limited. If there are more applications than available slots, participants from different groups with a demonstrated background required for this course and prior experience in single-cell analysis will be prioritized.
The registration fees for academics are 180 CHF. Participants from non-academic institutions should contact us before application.
