Analysis of single cell RNA-seq data (IN-PERSON) (1 of 3) [Full] 09:30 - 17:30 Bioinformatics Training Room, Craik-Marshall Building

Recent technological advances have made it possible to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells using high-throughput sequencing (scRNA-seq). Even though scRNA-seq makes it possible to address problems that are intractable with bulk RNA-seq data, analysing scRNA-seq is also more challenging.

In this course we will be surveying the existing problems as well as the available computational and statistical frameworks available for the analysis of scRNA-seq.
