This workshop will cover advanced topics in experimental design, data generation, and analysis of single cell RNA sequencing data (primarily generated using the 10x platform) on the command line and within the R statistical programming language. Participants will explore software and protocols, create and modify workflows, and diagnose/treat problematic data utilizing high performance computing services. Exercises will be performed on the command line and within R with a provided dataset. The primary packages used for analysis will be 10x software (for sequence reads to counts) and the R packages (ex. Seurat) for downstream analysis.

Participants should be familiar with the material covered in the Introduction to Single Cell RNA-Seq Workshop, including the use of the command line and R. Prior experience with the command line and R is a must to fully participate If you would like to attend, listen and learn, that is OK, but we will be unable to train you in how to use the command line and R during this workshop. This workshop will be held in Davis and will run from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day and include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks.

Participants must bring their own laptops to use, which should have a recent version of R, Rstudio, and Java installed, and an application that allows them to ssh into a server (e.g. Bash for Windows, or Terminal for Apple), as well as the ability to connect to the internet via wifi.

The registration fee is $1,500 for UC students, postdocs, staff and faculty, $1,750 for Non-UC academic or non-profit participants and $2,500 for other participants. Late registrations (less than one month prior to the start of the event) are subject to a 20% fee increase. We accept credit cards, as well as UC Davis recharge accounts, for payment.  Registration fees include light breakfast, lunch, and snacks, but do not include dinner, lodging or parking fees.
