Duration: 60 min

Lecture material:


  • Introduction: what are single-cell technologies?

  • Single-cell data generation:

    • Sample preparation methods: single-cell isolation

    • Library preparation and sequencing methods

      • 3'/5' end tagging methods: 10X Chromium

      • Full-length methods: Smart-seq2

      • Long-read sequencing methods
