SciLifeLab and SIB are pleased to co-organize this special event. Part of the places will be kept in priority to members of the SIB PhD Training Network and to PhD students affiliated with SciLifeLab.


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. The goal of this joint School is to provide PhD students and postdocs with theoretical and mostly hands-on knowledge on selected advanced topics in Single Cell analysis. In particular, the participants will be split in small groups to develop mini projects.


This course is addressed to participants who are already familiar with the typical steps in single-cell (transcriptomics) analysis, which will not be covered in this School.
