CZI BioHub sequencing effort for the FCA

The FCA is planning a collaborative effort to perform single-cell RNA-seq and single-nucleus RNA-seq on a large number of Drosophila tissues, supported by the CZI Biohub. On 29th of August, we will have an organisational FCA meeting from 8-11am (Pacific time) hosted at the Biohub. In addition to new data that will be generated for ~250,000 cells, we envision a data integration effort to integrate existing and future data into the FCA, to map data sets from various labs onto this "backbone", and to import FCA data into the HCA. To get an overview of existing data and ongoing efforts, and to estimate the required depth of coverage for each tissue, we kindly call for participation in this questionnaire.

    A workshop in conjunction with the 62th annual US Drosophila Research Conference.

    Organizers: Hongjie Li (Baylor), Lucy Erin O'Brien (Stanford), Brian Oliver (NIH), Norbert Perrimon (Harvard).

    Present your single-cell science in a special workshop at the US Fly Meeting! The Fly Cell Atlas Working Group is organizing a session to feature cutting-edge single-cell research in Drosophila and to spotlight new Fly Cell Atlas resources that will be freely available to the community. The workshop will consist of 8 min talks (+ 2 min questions). We particularly encourage submissions from students, postdocs, and new PIs. Apply today at the abstract submission form here!

    Abstract submission form: deadline Feb 3.
