Statistical Bioinformatics Seminar: Lun -- Challenges and future directions in single-cell data analysis

Hi all,

We’re excited to announce a Special Statistical Bioinformatics Seminar this 
Friday, with details below. Dr Aaron Lun is visiting from Cambridge University 
and will be speaking about the latest in analysis of single cell transcriptomics 
data. The talk will focus on discussion on the current challenges faced with 
such data as well as opportunities for further research.

Date: Friday, December 14th 2018
Time: 10 - 11AM
Location: Level 4 Large Meeting Room, Charles Perkins Centre

Title: Challenges and future directions in single-cell data analysis

Bio: I graduated from the University of Sydney with a Bachelor of Science, 
majoring in Molecular Biology and Genetics. I did my PhD in Bioinformatics 
at the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute for Medical Research with Gordon Smyth, 
working on statistical methods for analyzing ChIP-seq and Hi-C data to study 
chromatin structure and organization. I am currently working as a research 
associate with John Marioni at the CRUK Cambridge Institute, developing 
computational methods for analyzing single-cell RNA sequencing data. I 
maintain around 14 Bioconductor packages focusing on a range of genomics 
data analyses, but am probably best known as the cat on the support site.

See you then!

Cheers,
Shila
