Summer School Advanced topics in single cell Transcriptomics – Online

August 30 @ 08:00 September 3 @ 17:00 CEST


NBIS (SciLifeLab Bioinformatics Platform) and SIB (Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics) are pleased to co-organize this online course in Advanced topics in single cell Transcriptomics.

This jointly collaborative effort between the SIB and NBIS (SciLifeLab Bioinformatics Platform) was launched in 2019 as an every-second-year seasonal school where the thematic topic mirrors the life science demand of knowledge up-skilling. In 2019 we did a seasonal school on the topic of single-cell omics analysis and this year we are repeating this theme as the demand is still extremely high.

In recent years, single-cell transcriptomics has become a widely used technology to study heterogeneous and dynamic biological systems. A large number of new tools and approaches have been developed for analyzing this new type of data. The goal of this joint School is to provide PhD students and postdocs with theoretical and mostly hands-on knowledge on selected advanced topics in Single Cell analysis. In particular, the participants will be split into small groups to develop mini projects (more details provided later to accepted students.

For this one week course in single-cell transcriptomic we are delighted to have several excellent researchers and experts from both the Swedish and the Swiss Life Science community such as teachers such as Alma Andersson, Åsa Björklund, Volker Bergen, Paulo Czarnewski, Emma Dann, Charlotte Soneson, Panagiotis Papasaikas, Geert van Geest and others.

Target audience

This course is designed for intermediate users and we consider the knowledge of basic steps in single-cell analysis as a prerequisite.
