Single-cell RNA sequencing is a breakthrough technology enabling transcriptomic and even multi-omics research at the single-cell resolution. It has great potential for understanding cellular heterogeneity, dynamics, and gene regulation, opening new horizons for biomedical applications.
The complementary technology is developing human organoids, the next-level model systems for translational medicine. Organoids grown of human cells in vitro are used to understand biology of self-organization as well as mechanisms of diseases, and provide new system for drug discovery and testing.
Goals of the meeting:
- introduce the single-cell and organoids-based approaches to study biology and disease (especially, of human brain);
- gather biologists, engineers, and computational people to dive into scRNAseq technology and data analysis;
- introduce researchers and engineers to building and applying microfluidics device for single-cell biology.
The meeting will consist of two major parts:
September 28, 2018
Talks day. You can find the list of confirmed speakers by the link.
September 29-30, 2018
Workshop on building microfluidic device. You can find what it is about by the link.
The meeting is powered by Fabricator / FabLab.
Registration is open.
