Single Cell Summer Workshop - September 26-28, 2022
The first yearly workshop for single cell genomics data analysis will occur September 26 - 28, 2022. This year the workshop will focus on the introduction to single cell data analysis. The in-person Single Cell Omics Data Workshop requires an application and will cover the use of different single cell analysis tools for single cell DNA, RNA and Epigenetic analysis. The in-person workshop is capped at 30 people.
Cost: In-person portion of the workshop costs $50.
Applicant Eligibility: Applications are open to students, postdocs, fellows, staff, principal investigators, and others. Trainees (student, postdocs, fellows) at GCC (Gulf Coast Consortium) Institutions will be given preference. Beginners are welcome. However, they should complete an R programming online course first and basic unix/linux experience is strongly suggested.
Apply to the in-person analysis workshop here. Deadline: Sunday September 11th, 2022.
Applicants will be informed the week before the workshop if they were selected.
Day 1: Single Cell DNA Sequencing and Epigenomic Analysis.
Day 2: Single Cell Transcriptomic and Signature Analysis.
Day 3: Single Cell Multi-omics and Spatial Transcriptomic Analysis.
Will include talks and workshops from:
Nicholas Navin, Ph.D. – Professor of Genetics at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.
Ken Chen, Ph.D. - Professor, Department of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.
Luay K. Nakhleh, Ph.D. - Professor of Computer Science and of BioSciences at Rice University, Houston, TX.
Kunal Rai, Ph.D. - Associate Professor of Genomic Medicine at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.
Linghua Wang, Ph.D. - Associate Professor in the Department of Genomic Medicine at University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX.
Rui Chen, Ph.D. – Professor in Molecular and Human Genetics at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.
Lukas Simon, Ph.D. - Assistant Professor in Biochemistry at Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX.
TXSC Weekly Seminar Series
The core organizes a weekly seminar series on Fridays from 4-5 p.m. at MD Anderson that focuses on research related to single cell genomics. The seminar series is open to all researchers in the Texas Medical Center (TMC) and includes attendees and speakers from Baylor, University of Houston, Texas A&M, Methodist and Texas Children’s Hospital.
If you are interested in giving a talk at the TXSC seminar please contact Anna K. Casasent.
Gulf Coast Consortium (GCC) for Single Cell Omics
The GCC is a cluster of researchers across the TMC institutes that are interested in developing and applying single cell sequencing technologies for research applications. The GCC organizes a yearly single cell symposium, networking activities and has regular meetings with members across the TMC. The GCC is chaired by Rui Chen (Baylor), Nicholas Navin (MD Anderson) and Luay Nakhleh (Rice University). For more information, please visit the GCC Single Cell Omics website.
