Computational Medicine Workshops

We host computational medicine workshops for researchers interested in this emerging field.

Single-cell RNA-Seq CEL-Seq2 Workshop–March 20, 2017

Participants in this workshop led by the lab of Itai Yanai, PhD, learned how to start with hundreds of biological samples and get down to single-cell data analysis in only two days. Attendees learned how to take a single cell and obtain its entire transcriptome using the CEL-Seq2 protocol. The workshop can be viewed in its entirety in the video below.
