Single Cell Genomics and its application in Neuroscience research

This tutorial is a lecture that covers basic principles as they pertain to single cell genomics. We will cover basic experimental design and data quality control for analyzing single cell data, followed by new developments in sequencing technologies, such as single nucleus sequencing, Patch sequencing, spatial genomics and so on. The material will also cover how these new technologies could contribute to new discoveries in Neuroscience researches.

Intro to Single-cell Genomics (Duluth - SMed 142)

This tutorial is a lecture that covers basic experimental design principles as they pertain to single cell genomics. We will cover common technological platforms for collecting single cell data, basic experimental design, data quality control, and overviews of common software tools used for analyzing single cell data. The material will cover some of the common applications of single cell data and compare them to bulk data. The main applications will be for single cell RNAseq, but the principles would be appropriate to other types single cell genomics data, as well.
