Course content

The Microbial Single Cell Genomic facility, a part of the SciLifeLab platform Functional Genomics, will host a two days course on single cell analysis, with particular emphasis on genomics. The course aims at introducing the field by hands on laboratory work at the facility in combination with lectures ranging from cell sorting, whole genome amplification to data handling.

The course encompasses two days with laboratory work and lectures at the facility. An optional third day is the SciLifeLab Summit in Stockholm.
