Genomics Research Center Hosts Workshop Series

Tuesday, April 26, 2022

Introduction to Single Cell RNAseq Analysis Workshop

The Genomics Research Center is hosting an informatics workshop series: Introduction to single cell RNAseq analysis. The series will have four sessions, and each session will be split into a 45 minute lecture followed by a hands-on computational workshop that builds on the information covered in the lecture. Please note that attendance to the lecture is a prerequisite for the hands-on workshop that day.

Update (4/22/22): In-person attendance is full. Only remote is currently available
