Innovative bioinformatics for single-cell resolution data

How to meet technical challenges with analytical approaches

Lille, June 6, 2019

This one-day symposium is dedicated to the single-cell sequencing technology, which allows the simultaneous analysis of cell populations at the DNA and/or RNA level. It will offer an overview of its latest advancement and applications with a focus on the bioinformatics and biostatistics challenges raised by this type of data. The panel of speakers will discuss how to address these limitations. This symposium also aims to support the growing interest in such technology by stimulating interactions and collaborations.
