Single Cell Sequencing Mini-symposium – New Date Confirmed

Tickled by 10x? Surprised by Seurat? Curious about combinatorial indexing?

To gather together the nascent Otago single-cell sequencing community, we would like to invite you to a mini-symposium on the afternoon of the 23rd of June, supported by Genetics Otago and Decode Science. This will be an informal opportunity to talk about the growing variety of single-cell sequencing approaches, to share tips and techniques, and for those new to these methods to learn how they could be applied to their research questions.

A panel of speakers will be presenting examples of completed work, and their plans for the future. We also have space for more speakers, so if you would like to talk about your research, or ask for suggestions for future experiments, we would be happy to make space for you!

To register, and to provide a title if you would like to give a talk, please fill out the registration form below. The exact location will be confirmed based on registration numbers but will be on the Otago campus. A Zoom option may be possible, and please indicate on the form if you are based outside Dunedin and would join remotely if this was in place.

If you have any further questions, please contact Nathan at nathan.kenny@otago.ac.nz.
