2nd Hands-on workshop on

Single Cell Transcriptomics using 10x Genomics and its data analysis

April 2nd to 6th, 2024 ILS, Bhubaneswar

About Workshop

Join us for a comprehensive hands-on 5-day workshop on "Single Cell Transcriptomics using 10x Genomics and its data analysis." This workshop, organized by the esteemed BRIC – Institute of Life Sciences, Bhubaneswar, will provide participants with theoretical knowledge and practical skills in the rapidly advancing field of single cell genomics.

Single cell genomics allows for the study of individual cells at an unprecedented resolution, unravelling the complex landscape of cellular heterogeneity. In this workshop, we will focus on the application of single cell transcriptomics highlighting a complete comparative workflow between 3’GEX and 5’GEX, using the state-of-the-art 10x Genomics platform.

Workshop Highlights:
  1. Interactive Lectures:
    • Gain a comprehensive understanding of single cell transcriptomics -Gene Expression(GEX) profiles
    • Explore the principles, advantages, and challenges of single cell transcriptomics
    • Gain insights about the revolutionary spatial transcriptomics and its application
  2. Hands-on Practical Sessions:
    • Generate GEM (Gel Bead-In-EMulsion) from real samples
    • Perform laboratory protocols using the 10x Genomics platform
    • Perform techniques for a complete workflow comparison between 3’GEX and 5’GEX
  3. Data Analysis:
    • Acquire basic skills in data analysis for single cell transcriptomics
    • Learn how to interpret and visualize single cell genomics datasets
    • Explore bioinformatics tools and pipelines for data analysis
    • Plot generation from data using R
  4. Discussions and Q&A:
    • Engage in discussions with experienced instructors and fellow participants
    • Seek guidance on experimental design, troubleshooting, and best practices
Target Audience:

This comprehensive hands-on 5-day workshop is tailored for a wide range of participants, including:

  • PhD students and postdoctoral researchers seeking to incorporate single cell transcriptomics into their research projects.
  • Faculty members, scientists, and doctors who are interested in expanding their knowledge and skills in single cell genomics.
  • Industry professionals working in biotechnology, pharmaceuticals, and related fields who wish to leverage the power of single cell genomics for drug discovery, biomarker identification, and precision medicine.

Whether you are a PhD student, postdoc, faculty member, scientist, doctor, or industry professional, this workshop offers a unique opportunity to enhance your expertise in single cell transcriptomics and leverage this cutting-edge technology in your respective fields. By participating in the workshop, you will gain valuable insights, practical skills, and a solid understanding of the workflow, enabling you to confidently integrate single cell genomics into your research or professional endeavours.

The Hands-on sessions were thoroughly backed by proper explanations, were very good. It was very extensive and very well planned. Definitely want more of such kinds.

Clinician from AIIMS-BBSR

It’s a diverse platform which will help us explore new horizons in the field of immunology. It was a combination of gaining conceptual clarity as well as hands on experience.

PhD Student from NIRMA University

The workshop was well organized. All the students and staff of Dr. Sunil's Lab behaved very nicely and kindly. They are technically sound and patient enough to explain and clearing doubts. Overall, it was a wonderful experience.

Faculty from AMITY-Mumbai

It was a very comprehensive workshop where the organisers have tried to cover all the aspects related to the technique starting from the wet lab to bioinformatics analysis.
