Recent developments in molecular biology, microfluidics, and computational biology have transformed the field of single cell genomics, and have widespread biological applications. However, the breathtaking pace of technology development has given rise to a multitude of molecular protocols, commercial systems, and computational challenges.
The Satija Lab is excited to host the Fourth Annual Single Cell Genomics Day on Friday, January 24, 2020. This workshop will begin with an overview of exciting developments in the field over the past year, followed by in-depth presentations with an emphasis on practical details and considerations. Our goal is to empower you to utilize single cell genomics in your work. The workshop is free and open to beginners and experts alike.
- Learn about cutting-edge molecular technologies, including: paired RNA-seq and ATAC-seq from the same nucleus, and spatial measurements of single cell expression.
- Get a practical introduction to recently developed computational techniques, including algorithms for inferring cell-cell interactions, and analytical tools for spatial transcriptomics datasets.
- Learn about strategies for massively multiplexed experimental design, and new approaches to understand the effects of human genetic variation on cellular heterogeneity.
- Hear about recent updates from the Human Cell Atlas, a global initiative to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells.
- Share ideas, troubleshoot experiments, and ask questions.
- Hear keynote presentations from:
- Kun Zhang, University of California, San Diego
- Jimmie Ye, University of California, San Francisco
- Roser Vento,Tormo Sanger Institute
- Aviv Regev, Broad Institute, Massachusets Institute of Technology, Howard Hughes Medical Institute
Single Cell Genomics Day will be held at NYU Center for Genomics and Systems Biology, with check in beginning at 9:00 AM. Please register in advance to attend in person. The workshop is free for all participants, thanks to generous support from the NYU Biology department and Center for Genomics and Systems Biology.
