Workshop: Analysis of single-cell data

«L'emploi des moyennes en physiologie et en médecine ne donne le plus souvent qu'une fausse précision aux résultats en détruisant le caractère biologique des phénomènes. » . Claude Bernard

This quote from the father of modern physiology and medicine highlights the need for measuring biological phenomena at their relevant scale. The recent explosion in techniques allowing to interrogate the molecular content at the single cell level now allows to unleash the full power of the cell theory formulated in 1839.

We are currently witnessing an explosion in the wealth of data produced at the single cell level, but the theoretical framework in which those data can be analyzed needs to be updated. Although it is still too early to provide definivite standard approaches, this BioSyL workshop aims at providing both biologists and bioinformaticians with a crash course in the relevant analysis techniques.
