3-days Hands-on Workshop on
“Single Cell RNA sequencing and Basics of Analysis”
January 23-25, 2023

The Bio-IT Centre at IBAB is organizing a three-days Hands-on Workshop on “Single Cell RNA sequencing and Basics of Analysis” from Januray 23-25, 2023. This workshop will train candidates in the following;

  • Single cell RNA-seq: Principles and Methods
  • Sample Preparation and Validation for Single Cell Sequencing
  • Drop-seq, High Throughput Single Cell RNA-seq
  • 10x Genomics: Chromium Controller Single Cell 3 Work Flow
  • Pre-requisites for Single Cell RNA-seq Analysis: Linux command-line & R
  • Sample Preparation and Validation for Single Cell Sequencing: Dead Cell and Contaminants Removal, Pre-enrichment Prior to Single-cell Sequencing etc

Target Audience:

A lecture and hands-on laboratory workshop is ideal for researchers and bench scientists interested in a comprehensive introduction to single-cell RNA-Seq. The core of this workshop highlights key aspects of NGS and RNA-seq methodologies, with an introduction to modern tools to conduct experiments. Emphasis will be on essential aspects such as sample preparation, quality control validation and enrichment, and extensive use of different single cell RNA-Seq data analysis tools (Cell-Ranger, Seurat, Loupe Browser, Pseudo-time Analysis, Clustering Analysis in-depth: t-SNE and Principal Component Analysis).

Only fifteen candidates will be selected for this workshop on a first-come basis.

Registration Fee (inclusive of GST): These fees are only for those working in India. If you are working abroad, please email careers_bioit@ibab.ac.in for payment details.
