Spatial Omics: Events

Working group meetings

The Spatial Omics Initiative is organizing a monthly working group that will meet monthly in IGB 612 from 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm on Mondays. Lunch will be provided. The goal is to build relationships and develop collaborative proposals.

Some meetings will be held jointly with the IGB Center for Artificial Intelligence and Modeling (CAIM), to develop new ideas at the intersection of biology and analytics. Stay tuned for a more detailed agenda.

We encourage graduate students from both biological and analytical research groups to attend these seminars, to present the work done in their labs, and to participate in collective discussions; this will be a fantastic opportunity to learn how to work with a diverse group of collaborators.

January 30, 2023 (joint with CAIM): speakers Hee Sun Han and Jane Zhao

Reading group

The Spatial Omics Initiative and the GNDP theme are jointly organizing a monthly reading group on Spatial Transcriptomics this semester. The goal will be to learn about this new technology and to understand how it can be applied to address new questions in brain and behavior. We will meet every 3rd Tuesday of the month at 4pm Central in 2410 IGB with a virtual/hybrid option. Here is a list of papers to potentially read and discuss; please come prepared to suggest additional papers and to possibly sign up to lead one of the discussions.
