This could be interesting! 

NICR External Speaker Series

Tuesday 23 February at 1.00pm in the Baddiley Clark Seminar room and the guest speakers:

Mike Stubbington & Valentina Proserpio EBI & Welcome Trust Sanger Institute

Teichman Lab - group home page is here:  http://www.ebi.ac.uk/~saraht/index.html

Title of the Seminar is:  Single-cell investigations of T-helper cell differentiation

Brief Synopsis...

Valentina will be talking about her work investigating the link between proliferation and differentiation in Th2 differentiation and the mathematical model that arose from this work. She used single-cell qPCR, single-cell RNAseq and single-cell live imaging. Mike will be talking about work that they have done to extend analyses of T cell single-cell RNAseq data to reconstruct T cell receptor sequences. This allows us to infer clonal relationships between cells and to connect this with their transcriptional identity.

They will give a good overview of Single-cell methods within the context of a set of accessible and exciting scientific questions.
