Virtual Workshop

‘Spatial transcriptomics data analysis in Python’: May 23-24, 2022 , 2 – 5 pm (CEST).

The workshop will cover the analysis of spatial transcriptomics data in Python, with tools like squidpy, node-centric expression models (ncem) as well as deconvolution (cell2location) and registration methods (eggplant). Basic python and scanpy knowledge required. Please register in order to receive information on how to join the event.

@evrlab: Super happy that our paper,, has just come out In @SciImmunology ! Kudos & thanks to lead author Wen Zhou @CynthiaZhou6 for her strong vision and heroic execution of the project, to bioinformatics guru Fan Gao, and to our fine coauthors & collaborators.
Our workshop on “Spatial transcriptomics data analysis in Python” with >650 registrations is closed by Johanna Klughammer’s (@LMU_Muenchen) keynote lecture, sharing her opinion where the field is moving.
Big thanks to all the speakers!

Recordings available on YouTube soon.

If you are not convinced, yet 😉, of how amazing induced pluripotent stem cells are, have a look at our latest work on human iPSC differentiation to myeloid cells now out in @NatureComms. @sangerinstitute @OpenTargets #singlecell #HumanCellAtlas
Second day of our workshop on „Spatial transcriptomics data analysis in Python“ starting now!

Join us if you like to learn more about Eggplant and Cell2location:

Single cell genomics is revolutionizing biology and medicine, combining the advantages of bulk sequencing techniques and microscopic analysis of single cells.

Rapid technological advances now allow the profiling of genomes, transcriptomes and epigenomes at an unprecedented level of resolution. To harness the full potential of these developments new computational methods specifically tailored towards the analysis of single cell omics data are essential. Integrating efforts in all research areas involved will enhance the translation of single cell sequencing techniques to the clinic. The network Single Cell Omics Germany (SCOG) brings together national researchers using and developing single cell technologies to generate insights into biological systems. Its mission is to provide a collaborative platform for the exchange of both computational and experimental methods and expertise, thereby strengthening single cell research in Germany. Connecting the German single cell community with relevant international initiatives (such as HCA and IHEC), the network will help to address biomedical questions and foster translational research.
