CURRENT METHODS FOR GENOME AND TRANSCRIPTOME ANALYSIS IN SINGLE CELLS
Harvard University | Sherman-Fairchild 268 | 7 Divinity Avenue | Cambridge
This workshop will provide attendees with an opportunity to gain detailed information on several current methods for single‐cell genome and transcriptome analysis and will cover the theory and key technical elements of each method. It will also include a session on quality control in single cell analysis and a round-table discussion which will focus on optimization of experimental design for single cell analysis-based experiments.

COMPUTATIONAL ANALYSIS OF THE SINGLE-CELL RNA-seq DATA
Harvard Medical School | Countway Library | Lahey Room, 5th Floor | 10 Shattuck Street | Boston
The workshop will provide attendees with an opportunity to get an overview of the key issues involved in the analysis of single-cell RNA-seq data, and learn how to use several tools for such analysis through detailed tutorial walk-throughs.
The program will include lectures by John Marioni (EBI, UK), Guo-Cheng Yuan (DFCI) and Peter Kharchenko (HMS). The detailed tutorials will cover the entire scope of the single-cell RNA-seq analysis pipelines, from read processing and alignment, to expression magnitude normalization, differential expression and subpopulation analysis.
