Please register here.

As we have limited places (120 max.) we kindly ask you to register as soon as possible. Registration is free, but please let us know if you eventually cannot come since there may be a waiting list.

Registration closes on March 1, 2019.

Hackathon Computational Single Cell Genomics

The Workshop is followed by a hackathon structured in a Scanpy tutorial and a practical part containing computational challenges with previously queried topics/problems for PhD students and postdocs of participating labs. Basic knowledge of Python* is a requirement.

* i.e. free ebook “Python for Scientists and Engineers” gives a short introduction to scientific computing with Python (link), especially chapters: “An introduction to Numpy and Matplotlib”, “Introduction to Pandas with Practical Examples” and “Data Analysis with Pandas”.



Registration Fee
