Our next meeting will be at 2pm on April 23rd, in room 4160 of the Discovery building. Our Selected paper is Alignment of single-cell trajectories to compare cellular expression dynamics.
The abstract is as follows.
Single-cell RNA sequencing and high-dimensional cytometry can be used to generate detailed trajectories of dynamic biological processes such as differentiation or development. Here we present cellAlign, a quantitative framework for comparing expression dynamics within and between single-cell trajectories. By applying cellAlign to mouse and human embryonic developmental trajectories, we systematically delineate differences in the temporal regulation of gene expression programs that would otherwise be masked.
We welcome all who can join us for this discussion. Feel free to begin that discussion in the comments section below.
