Who can apply?
This is an international course hosted by the National Bioinformatics Infrastructure Sweden (ELIXIR-SE) in collaboration with the Human Developmental Cell Atlas (HDCA), the Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm University, Karolinska Institutet, Uppsala University, Charité Clinical University (ELIXIR-DE), Helmholtz Munich (Germany) and the European Molecular Biology Organisation. The course is open for PhD students, postdocs, group leaders and core facility staff working on spatial omics technologies.
Please note that NBIS training events do not provide any formal university credits. The training content is estimated to correspond to a certain number of credits, however the estimated credits are just guidelines. If formal credits are crucial, the student needs to confer with the home department before submitting a course application in order to establish whether the course is valid for formal credits or not.
Practical exercises will be performed in Python, so we only accept students that fulfill the entry requirements (see below).
Required for being able to follow the course and complete the practical exercises:
- Basic knowledge in Python
- Be able to use your own computer with a web camera
- Have miniconda3 installed in your computer
- Desirable: Previous experience with single cell RNA-seq analysis is an advantage.
- If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
Due to limited space the course can accommodate a maximum of 32 participants. If we receive more applications, participants will be selected based on several criteria. Selection criteria include correct entry requirements, motivation to attend the course as well as gender and geographical balance.
