SCONE: Single Cell Omics Network for ELIXIR

1 January 2023 - 31 December 2024

Single-cell omics has revolutionised the way life science research is conducted. However, the unprecedented opportunities offered by single-cell omics technologies are accompanied by data analysis challenges.

SCONE will address the need for scalable training by training more trainers and by providing easy access to up-to-date training resources. Efficient benchmarking of analysis tools will be achieved by providing curated benchmarking datasets. To effectively address shortfalls in current data/metadata standard paradigms, SCONE will monitor emerging technologies and organise workshops on standard and FAIR data management practices in use across the entire single-cell omics community. The ELIXIR Compute Platform will be kept up to date with the computing requirements of single-cell omics researchers. 

The present study is participated in by twenty ELIXIR Nodes. For ELIXIR Belgium, Alexander Botzki is involved.
