Qlife Winter School (Paris): February 8-12, 2021
Recent technological developments in sequencing, imaging and image analysis have granted access to unprecedented temporal and spatial resolution of gene expression, cell dynamics and morphological features.
The Qlife program in Quantitative Biology of the PSL University, in partnership with the Labex DEEP, organizes a winter school that will cover these emerging approaches through a series of lectures and digital workshops, using datasets from Drosophila, ascidians, mammals and plants.Dynamic, quantitative analysis of embryonic development will be performed through the combination of image analysis (segmentation, cell tracking, registration) with multiscale analysis of forces and modelling, These data will be integrated with the output of single cell, spatial and barcoding transcriptomic analyses to provide an unprecedented combined view of cell location, morphology, interactions, migration, expression pattern and fate.
Lunches and dinners with the speakers and instructors will foster informal discussions.
The winter school is limited to 20 participants. It is open to M2 students and PhD students, as well as postdocs, engineers and junior scientists, with backgrounds in life science, geoscience, physics, computer science or mathematics. Basic experience in file manipulation under Unix/Linux and in Python or R programming is required.
