Single Cell RNA-Seq Data Analyses Workshop
February 12 @ 09:00 – February 16 @ 17:00 CET
This workshop will introduce the best practice bioinformatics methods for analysing single cell RNA-seq data via a series of lectures and computer practicals. The total course duration is 5 days which includes 4 days of lectures and exercises followed by a “Bring Your Own Data” day where you get to practice your skills on a dataset of your choosing.
The course is organized by: National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (NBIS)
Responsible teachers: Åsa Björklund, Susanne Reinsbach, Roy Francis
