Single Cell Course Week 2023

Are you interested in learning how to produce or analyse single cell RNAseq data? Then the single cell course week in October 2023 is for you! During this course week you will learn how to prepare single cell RNAseq libraries with 10XGenomics Chromium, how to analyze the data (R/command line tools or Chipster/Seurat), and you have the possibility to enjoy state-of-the-art talks in the symposium.
