Master the tools and techniques to confidently analyze single-cell RNA-seq data and gain new insights into complex biological systems
September 25-27, 2024
9 am - 5 pm
The Single-Cell RNA-Seq Workshop is designed to provide a thorough introduction to the analysis of single-cell RNA sequencing data. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on exercises, participants will learn how to process, analyze and integrate single-cell data using industry-standard tools and techniques. Topics covered include sequencing technologies, data quality control, preprocessing, dimensional reduction, clustering, trajectory inference, differential expression analysis, and multi-sample integration.
By the end of the workshop, attendees will have the skills and confidence to perform custom analyses and gain new insights into complex biological systems. This workshop is ideal for researchers and students with little or no prior experience in single-cell RNA-seq analysis, as well as those seeking to update their skills and knowledge.
Our trainers have a proven record of academic and/or industrial experience in NGS data analysis. Because up-to-date expert knowledge is needed to answer your questions and know what is important in the field.
We only use open source tools that are free to use for academia and industry.
For an optimal learning experience we carefully prepare our learning materials and example data.
This workshop has been adapted to the needs of beginners in the field of (biological) data analysis and comprises these three course modules:
Dr. Adam Nunn (ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH)
Adam is an expert bioinformatician skilled in developing data analysis pipelines. He specializes in whole genome DNA-Seq, de-novo genome assemblies, bulk RNA-Seq, and single-cell RNA-Seq. At ecSeq Bioinformatics, he is the go-to specialist for single-cell RNA-Seq analysis. Adam's expertise enables him to extract valuable insights from complex datasets, unraveling gene expression patterns at the single-cell level. Publications
Dr. Mario Fasold (ecSeq Bioinformatics GmbH)
Mario works in the analysis of microarray data since 2007 and developed several bioinformatics tools such as the Bioconductor package AffyRNADegradation and the Larpack program package. Since 2011 he specialized in the field of NGS data analysis and helped analysing sequencing data of several large consortium projects. Publications
The target audience are biologists or data analysts with no or little experience in developing computational pipelines for data analysis. A superficial understanding of molecular biology (DNA, RNA, gene expression, PCR, ...) is assumed, as examples will be given in the context of this field.
Some familiarity with a command line interface (e.g. Linux, Mac OS X) and a minimal understanding of object-oriented programming (with e.g. Python or Java) is recommended but not required.

"Overall, I was extremely satisfied with this workshop. As a beginner to any sort of RNA analysis this was a great introduction and along with the course material book, I believe I could now tackle a dataset independently which is exactly what I wanted from this course. So, thank you all very much for organising such a superb workshop!" Charlotte Dunne, Pantherna Therapeutics, Germany
"I am writing to express my utmost satisfaction with the Bioanalysis in Single Cell Sequencing course. The comprehensive content covered every aspect needed, offering a full understanding of the topic. I would like to extend my gratitude to the exceptional instructors whose friendliness and eagerness to answer all our queries made the learning experience truly enriching. Their knowledge and commitment to our understanding were apparent and highly appreciated. I am looking forward to applying the skills and knowledge I have gained in my future work." Wilson DSB, Sanofi, Paris, France
"It was an extremely condensed, organised and highly intellectual program. After the course, I felt comfortable with the material and the analysis of single cell RNA sequencing. I enjoyed every bit of the course, including the social aspect. I also appreciated that the tutors took their time to explain every question even when we were running short of time." Eugene Padi, Rigshospitalet, Denmark
