5 days-online workshop on single-cell RNA-seq data analysis

Single-cell RNA sequencing platforms enable the assessment of gene expression levels at the single-cell resolution. Moreover, such a powerful technology also provides an unprecedented opportunity to investigate fundamental biological questions at the cellular level, such as identification of the rare cell types. In this workshop, participants will be imparted with both theoretical and hands-on training involved in the single-cell RNA sequencing analysis. The course includes step-by-step lectures/tutorials to the methodologies associated with scRNA-sequencing datasets.

Course highlights

Day 1 (Duration : 90 minutes) : Introduction to the next-generation sequencing techniques | Evolution and types of single-cell genomics techniques | Theory of library preparation.

Day 2 (Duration : 90 minutes) : Introduction to programming and data analysis | FASTQ file to expression matrix, including the quality control steps

Day 3 (Duration : 90 minutes) : Gene/Cell filtering and Normalisation | Dimension reduction and Clustering | Differential expression analysis | Pseudo temporal analysis

Day 4 (Duration : 90 minutes) : Hands-on - basic analysis

Day 5 (Duration : 90 minutes) : Case study - Cell type vulnerability of COVID-19
