Single-cell OMICS has recently emerged as a revolutionary approach to studying individual cells' gene expression and epigenome. Therefore, it has shaped our understanding of cellular heterogeneity and it has become a powerful tool to find previously unknown cellular states and populations.

This course seeks to accelerate the implementation of single-cell OMICS approaches in Institutions/labs by introducing the basics for its successful outcomes.

Our take-home message is: you don’t have to be an expert to start with, just take the leap and let us guide you through the process. At the end of the course, we expect students and researchers to be able to perform basic transcriptomic and/or epigenomic studies and be equipped with the tools to further develop their knowledge.

This course does not provide credentials for the exercise of medicine for those without appropriate training, recognition and registered at the "Ordem dos Médicos" or international equivalent institutions. ​
