The BBI bioinformatics team is hosting a virtual Garnett tutorial to help you learn how to build classifiers and perform cell type classification from single-cell expression data. Although we encourage everyone to attend, this particular session is mainly for researchers that have prior experience of analyzing single-cell data.

The prerequisites for this session are:
1. Basic R and R markdown knowledge
2. Monocle 3 installed from here
3. Garnett for Monocle 3 installed from here

During this session, we will cover the following topics:
1. A quick overview of Garnett
2. Training your own classifier
3. Classifying your cells
4. Common marker file errors & how to spot them
5. Introduction to training a marker-free classifier

There will also be some time to address specific questions.

Host: Aishwarya Gogate
When: Wednesday, 9th December 2020 from 9am – 11am
