single-cell RNABIO & organoids (#scRNABIO) is the first event in Kyiv aimed to bring these technologies to Ukraine by inviting excellent speakers who develop technologies, use them to make discoveries, and transfer cutting-edge knowledge from bench to clinics.
The meeting will consist of two major parts:
September 28, 2018 - Talks day.
- Alex Shcheglovitov, The University of Utah, USA Using iPSC-derived cortical organoics for modeling early aspects of human cortical development
- William Stephenson, New York Genome Center, USA Single-cell multi-omics using open microfluidics instrumentation
- Mireya Plass, Berlin Institute for Medical Systems Biology | Max-Delbrück-Centrum für Molekulare Medizin, Germany Cell type atlas and lineage tree of a whole complex animal by single-cell transcriptomics
- Luciano Martelotto, The University of Melbourne, Australia Bringing single nuclei sequencing technologies to difficult samples: experience on FFPE and frozen archived material
- Hans Binder, University of Leipzig, Germany Cancer heterogeneity and development as seen by single cell bioinformatics
- Felipe Vilella, Igenomix Foundation, INCLIVA Health Research Institute, Spain Single cell RNAseq provides a molecular and cellular cartography of changes to the human endometrium through the menstrual cycle
September 29-30, 2018 - Workshop on miniDrops.
The workshop will be devoted to building open-source, low-cost microfluidics device for single-cell biology. It will be taught by its creator - Dr. William Stephenson from the New York Genome Center, USA. We will build the device for library prep for single-cell RNA sequencing using 3D printing of custom parts, getting together Raspberry Pi controller, and other parts into working device - miniDrops.
The participation is for free for both the talks day and the workshop, but the number of places is limited. Please register by the link before Sep 1: http://rnabio.space/register/
