Virtual Lecture Series
‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics’:
14. Emmanuel Saliba (HZI/HIRI Würzburg)

We are excited to announce the next speaker in our SCOG Virtual Lecture Series ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics’:  Emmanuel Saliba (HZI/HIRI Würzburg)
  • Title: ‘Decoding host-pathogen interactions one cell at the time
The interplay between pathogens and host cells forms a complex inter-organism interaction leading to disparate outcomes but the underlying differential molecular interactions remain poorly understood. Single-cell genomics has opened a new era to track bacterial and viral infections with an unprecedented resolution. While scRNA-seq has started to unveil the heterogeneity of individual pathogen-host encounters, it conveys little information on the true temporal dynamics of infection processes. We will introduce scSLAM-seq, a technology that combines RNA metabolic labeling, nucleotide conversion, and deep scRNA-seq to reveal the onset of viral infections. In a second part of the talk, we will present a novel technology to profile the transcriptome of individual bacteria and potentially in the future the transcriptome of complex microbial communities. Finally, we will also summarize our latest efforts to respond to the current COVID-19 crisis. Overall, single cell genomics is providing fundamental biological insights in host-pathogen interactions and potentially novel tools to predict the outcome of an infection and novel therapeutic avenues to control the disease onset and progression.
Further information on participation, the program and the application for a lecture can be found below.

Virtual lecture series ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Omics’

  • Biweekly event on Fridays at 9:30 am (CEST)
  • 30 min presentation, followed by 15 min discussion / Q&A
The virtual lecture series includes biweekly presentations about current single cell research. In addition to selected presentations by invited guests, we would particularly like to offer SCOG partners a platform to present their work to the network (read below how to apply).
The program will be updated regularly (see schedule below).
The Virtual Lecture Series takes place via Zoom. Please register in order to receive information on how to join the webinar. Your personal join link will be valid for all upcoming lectures of the series. Please note: We are changing the platform from GoToWebinar to Zoom! You have to register for the lecture series again, even if you have already registered before.  REGISTER HERE.
Apply for lecture 
We would kindly like to encourage the SCOG community not only to participate as an attendee but to present their work to the community. All contributions are welcome.
If you are a SCOG partner (PI/group leader) or member (Postdoc) and would like to give a talk during the lecture series, please APPLY BY COMPLETING THIS FORM.
Please note that a balanced representation of topics, institutes and gender will be ensured in the selection of applications.
