Course announcement: BTEC:5001-102 Single Cell Genomics

This summer I, the Center for Biotechnology and Genomics is offering a new course in Single Cell Genomics!

This course provides an overview of the principles and analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq). With research challenges emerging, there is a need for cellular resolution where conventional bulk RNA-seq experiments are no longer enough; instead, high-throughput sequencing is needed to obtain genome-wide transcriptome data from single cells or single nuclei.

This course will provide students with fundamental concepts, such as sample preparation, cell capture, transcript quantification, and hands-on- practice in data analysis. By the end of this course, students will have the theoretical knowledge and practical analysis skills to perform their own single-cell experiments. The technique of scRNA-seq has revolutionized the biotechnology field, from disease research to drug development, and it allows researchers to refine their approach to the new challenges of biotechnological research.

Summer I: from 5/28/2024 to 06/29/2024

Schedule: Tue, Wed, Thu from 10:00 am to noon
