scRNA-seq: challenges and opportunities

Time: 14:00 – 15:00 (BST)

Single cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has been gaining popularity and it has been applied to characterising cell types and understanding disease and developmental processes. At this webinar, the speakers will introduce the most popular microfluidics approach, 10x, and outline the main steps of standard scRNA-seq analysis. They will also give examples of applying scRNA-seq to biological problems and discuss the opportunities of initiatives like the Human Cell Atlas. Finally, they will outline some open problems in the field. They will discuss the limitations of current methods for detection of cell-cell interaction and present some recent advances of studying interaction through sequencing physically interacting cells and development of computational approaches.

Invited speakers:

  • Dr Thomas Otto (PI), University of Glasgow
  • Ms Alexandrina Pancheva (PhD Student), University of Glasgow

This webinar will be chaired by Professor Helen Wheadon, who is Professor of Stem Cell Regulation (Paul O’Gorman Leukaemia Research Centre) at the Institute of Cancer Sciences, University of Glasgow.
