The goal of this new two week course is to familiarize students with the most recent cutting edge technologies for characterization of cells. Important in this process will be highlighting the advantages to analysis of single cells in isolation and intheir natural microenvironment. Sections of the course will be taught by scientists who are expert in particular areas of single cell analysis. Topics to be covered include quantitative single cell analysis by RNAseq, genomic DNA analysis, epigenetics, RNA localization analysis, proteomics, protein translation and metabolomics. The techniques to be taught will include real-time live cell quantification where appropriate. Also multiple techniques to isolate specific cell populations and individual cells will be taught.

The course will include the use of model systems such as mouse, Drosophila, C.elegans, C.elegans, Aplysia and Planaria.
