UC Davis Bioinformatics Core,

Our new series of remote learning workshops offer the same interactive learning and one-on-one troubleshooting that characterize our in person events. We will be alternating short instructive talks and demonstrations with scheduled time for hands-on learning supported by our team of instructors, who will be ready to answer questions, share screens, and debug code as needed.

This distance learning workshop will cover experimental design, data generation, and analysis of single cell RNA sequencing data (primarily generated using the 10x platform) on the command line and within the R statistical programming language. Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data utilizing high performance computing services. Exercises will be performed on the command line and within R with a provided dataset. The primary packages used for analysis will be 10x software (for sequence reads to counts) and the R packages (ex. Seurat) for downstream analysis.

There are no prerequisites other than basic familiarity with genomic concepts. Anyone with an interest in scRNA sequence analysis is welcome! Some familiarity with the command-line and R is helpful. However, we will dedicate some small amount of time to bringing everyone up-to-speed to be able to run the commands needed during this workshop. This workshop will be held entirely online and will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day and include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

Participants must have a computer with an internet connection, which should have a recent version of R, Rstudio, and Java installed, and an application that allows them to ssh into a server (e.g. Bash for Windows, or Terminal for Apple).

The registration fee is $1,500 for UC students, postdocs, staff and faculty, $1,750 for Non-UC academic or non-profit participants and $2,500 for other participants. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment.
