Single-Cell Transcriptomics is improving the quality of biological investigations by enhancing the dissection of heterogeneity in complex tissues and cell cultures. This 3-day course aims to provide an overview of a complete Single-Cell RNA sequencing workflow: - A theoretical overview of all existing methods to perform Single-Cell RNA sequencing libraries with a focus on individual features and weaknesses. - A practical hands-on laboratory training to produce 10X Genomics 3’ Single-Cell RNA sequencing libraries. - A practical bioinformatics training that will provide guidelines and tools to process and analyze Single-Cell RNA sequencing libraries from raw sequences to visualization.
