This course will be streamed to registered participants only.


ASAP (Automated Single-cell Analysis Portal) is a web-based, collaborative portal aimed at democratizing single-cell omics data analyses and rendering it more accessible to researchers. ASAP does not require any installation and enables standardized analyses that can be run in minutes by any user without requiring significant computing power. The entire single-cell analysis pipeline is available in ASAP, allowing users to choose from a panel of tools, and guiding them through tutorials.

This 1 day course introduces participants to using ASAP for single-cell analysis, through lectures and hands-on exercises.


This course is addressed to students, postdocs, and researchers, from any scientific environment (academia, facilities, companies, etc.) interested in analyzing single-cell data.

Learning outcomes

At the end of the course, the participants are expected to:

  • run a single-cell RNA-seq analysis pipeline using ASAP
  • choose the best tools and parameters for each analysis step
  • carry out cell-type annotation and downstream analyses


Knowledge / competencies

Basic knowledge of single-cell analysis equivalent to the SIB course Single-Cell Transcriptomics with R is required.


This course will be streamed, you are thus required to have your own computer with an Internet connection.
