Cajal online lecture series: Single Cell Transcriptomics, 2-6 November 2020
QuantOCancer approved funding: 79 EUR (registration fee)
"The Cajal course on Single Cell Transcriptomics initially planned as a theoretical and practical course was adapted to the Cajal online lecture series: Single Cell Transcriptomics due to the pandemic situation. This course was organized by Dr.Jens Hjerling-Leffler from the Karolinska Institute and Dr.Peter Kharchenko from Harvard University focused on central ideas of single cell profiling through lectures and interactive sessions with prominent international faculty speakers. This course was a great opportunity to develop my knowledge on single-cell profiling techniques, specially to get exposed to the most recent cutting-edge techniques being used as well as to create a network with international experts in the field. I believe that my attendance to this Cajal course was a step forward in order to initiate a deep characterization of stem cells on the adult fly, allowing our project to thrive in the near future. After attending this course, I will make sure to spread the acquired knowledge not only to my research group but also to the CCU community."
