Video about the course.

The goal of this two-week course is to teach students cutting-edge wet-lab approaches for single cell analysis, and to provide familiarity with basic bioinformatic approaches to single cell data. Modules of the course will be taught by scientists with expertise in distinct areas of single cell analysis.

  • Droplet-based single cell RNA-seq on fixed 
  • Spatial Transcritomics using Slide-Seq technology
  • Single cell western blot
  • Photoactivatable single cell probes
  • Single cell mass 
  • Introductory single cell sequencing analysis
  • and more
