SCOG event

Virtual SCOG workshop ‘Temporal Single Cell Analysis’

Fabian Theis, Institute of Computational Biology, Helmholtz Munich
Emmanuel Saliba, Helmholtz Institute for RNA-based infection research, Würzburg

A major obstacle to understanding dynamical processes in biology is that they happen in the scale of a few hours and are highly heterogeneous and asynchronous across cells. We are currently lacking a clear molecular, temporal and spatial picture of transition processes.

Recent advances in single-cell and computational technologies are making addressing these challenges possible. Thus, this workshop will bring together experts in temporal single-cell technologies from the experimental and computational sides that are developing novel methods to uncover cellular transitions. The sessions will cover the new exciting fields of RNA metabolic labeling and velocity.
