This workshop focuses on the large-scale study of heterogeneity across individual cells from a genomic, transcriptomic and epigenomic point of view. New technological developments enable the characterization of molecular information at a single cell resolution for large numbers of cells. The high dimensional omics data that these technologies produce come with novel methodological challenges for the analysis. In this regard, specific bioinformatics and statistical methods have been developed in order to extract robust information. The workshop aims to provide such methods for engineers and researchers directly involved in functional genomics project making use of single-cell. A wide range of single cell topics will be covered in lectures, demonstrations and practical classes. Among others, the areas and issues to be addressed will include the choice of the most appropriate single-cell sequencing technology, the experimental design and the bioinformatics and statistical methods and pipelines.
