Single Cell RNA-Seq: This in-depth lecture and hands-on laboratory workshop (wet lab & in silica) is ideal for those research and bench scientists who are interested in a comprehensive introduction to single cell RNA-Seq. The core of this workshop is composed of highlighting key aspects of NSG and RNA-seq methodologies, with subsequent introduction into the modern armamentarium of tools to conduct these experiments. Further emphasis will be placed on such important aspects as sample preparation, quality control validation and enrichment as well as extensive use of different single cell RNA-Seq data analysis tools (Seurat, Monocle, Pseudo-time Analysis, Clustering Analysis in-depth: t-SNE and Principal Component Analysis).

March 27-30, 2023 • Preregistration Form

Python is a popular scripting language that is used by data professionals because of its many-popular statistical libraries. The live remote three-day lecture and hands-on computer-based laboratory workshop is designed to introduce bench scientists to the powerful tasks that can be taken up with Python by learning everything from language syntax to data manipulation to visualization: all in the context of relevant biological problems! Hands-on topics will include data manipulation, building useful functions to extract data, import/export/writing of data to files, and beginning algorithmic approaches to bioinformatic problems..

April 10-12, 2023 Preregistration Form


Exosomes: Principles, Methods and Applications: Taught by leaders in the field, this 4-day class provides students with an exciting, up-to-date introduction to the field of exosomes, microvesicles, and other extracellular vesicles (EVs). Lectures cover our current understanding of the biochemistry, molecular, and cell biology of EV biogenesis and uptake, the functions and analysis of EV RNAs, and the latest approaches to purifying and analyzing exosomes and other EVs. These lectures are interwoven with hands-on laboratory instruction in which participants use well-validated protocols, reagents and kits from major manufacturers to purify exosomes and interrogate their protein and RNA content. Participants will leave the class with the conceptual framework and practical know-how necessary to explore the contribution of exosomes and other EVs to whatever biological question they are investigating.
