We are pleased to announce our SCOG sponsored event on single cell epigenomics, chaired by Jörn Walter, Saarland University.

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.

Hackathon 'Advances in Single Cell Epigenomics'

Date

November 05 (4.30 pm) – November 06 (4 pm) 2019

Venue

Linslerhof, Überherrn/Saarlouis

Organizer

Maria Colomé-Tatché

Outline

First a tutorial on 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 a count matrix for different genomic features (peaks, promoters, enhancers, etc) from epigenomics data, starting from a .bam or .fastq file; 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.

Prerequisite

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.
