FRIDAY 17 NOVEMBER 2023
Pushing boundaries in veterinary immunology – A new era of NGS, with single cell sequencing and spatial transcriptomics (Facilitators: Diagnostech)
Redefining NGS, one cell at a time. Join us for a half day workshop at IVIS and learn how single cell sequencing is changing the future and leading to fundamental discoveries across multiple areas of biology, including oncology and immunology.
Every day, immunologists deepen our understanding of the immune system’s intricate network of responses and interactions. Learn how single cell and spatial multiomics are empowering exciting new research into autoimmunity, immuno-oncology, vaccine development, and beyond.
Explore methods that let you uncover molecular insights, dissect cell-type differences, detect novel cell subtypes and biomarkers, define gene regulatory interactions, and decipher spatiotemporal gene expression patterns.
This workshop will be hosted by renowned researchers in veterinary immunology, Prof Christine Maritz-Oliver and Prof Crystal Loving, as well as supported by Diagnostech and 10x Genomics experts.
We will cover topics like:
- What is Single Cell Sequencing and why are we heading in this direction?
- What is the technology, and what are the limitations?
- How can you successfully design a project using these technologies, and get workable results to publish?
- Bioinformatics, computational difficulties and what to master early on
- Discussion with the experts
