SCOG Workshop ‘Recent Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics 2022’

We are excited to announce this upcoming in-person workshop at Linslerhof, Überherrn/ Saarlouis.
The meeting will provide an overview of the latest findings and developments in the field of single cell epigenomics with cutting edge discussions. It will be followed by a hackathon on epiScanpy, a tool for the analysis of single cell epigenomics data.
  • Further Information:

    First tutorials on scanpy and epiScanpy will be presented. EpiScanpy is a tool for the analysis of single cell epigenomics data (mainly scATAC-seq and single cell DNA methylation data). Participants will see how to build count matrices for different genomic features (peaks, promoters, enhancers, etc) from transcriptomic and epigenomic data; and it will be explained how downstream analysis such as clustering, low-dimensional data visualization, trajectory inference or differential calling are performed.
    Then, several data challenges will be presented that participants can work on in groups. If you have your own data, bring it!
    More details about the planned challenges and request of material will be send to participants later.

    The hackathon is open to wet-lab and dry-lab researchers at all levels of expertise regarding single cell analysis. However, epiScanpy is a python tool, so basic python knowledge will be required.


    We have blocked a number of rooms at the conference venue (Linslerhof). Booking should be made individually by the participants after acceptance of the registration. The accommodation is sponsored by the BMBF (SCOG). Further information will be provided after registration.


    The places for the meeting and the hackathon are limited (meeting: 50 places, hackathon: 25 places). Please complete the registration application, including information about your activities and interest in the field of single cell epigenomics. This information is important so that the organizing committee can review and accept applications, e.g. to consider the equal participation with respect to institutions, gender etc.

    Opening of applications: 08 August 2022
    Deadline for applications: 18 September 2022

    Notification of acceptance will be announced approximately 2 weeks after the application deadline and further information will be provided to complete and finalize the registration. If the application deadline is extended, the selection will be announced later.
    We encourage participants to apply for the meeting and hackathon and to submit an abstract for a poster or a short presentation.
