Gender Dimension in Research

This course introduces the basics of incorporating gender-related and sex-specific issues into theorethical and applied research that does not otherwise address sex and gender. Such a gender-sensitive approach is increasingly becoming a mandatory element of project proposals in all programmes of the European Research Area.

10X Genomics seminar June the 15th at 09:00 in Bygg for Biologiske Basalfag

We are very pleased to invite you to our seminar “See biology in new ways with single cell and spatial technology”.

The event will be held on June the 15th at 9:00 at the Bygg for Biologiske Basalfag next to the Haukeland University Hospital.

This will be a morning event that will be followed by a pizza lunch, and you will be able to hear about the latest developments in the field of single cell and spatial RNA sequencing, and how Chromium Single Cell, Visium Spatial, and Xenium In Situ platforms from 10x Genomics can help you push the boundaries of your research. Local researchers form the University of Bergen will also explain their research and showcase the applications of our technology on their research.

The aim of this meeting is to help transfer knowledge, give an opportunity to network with those undertaking similar experiments, and support researchers interested in single-cell and spatial transcriptomics. Register to the talks here.

Date: Thursday, 15th June 2023
Time: 9:00 – 13:00
Venue: Auditorium 4,  Bygg for Biologiske Basalfag, Jonas Lies vei 91, 5009 Bergen, Norway
