Event: Sept. 20, Unraveling tumor heterogeneity using single-cell RNAseq data: biology in a high-dimension sparse matrix

Event Date: September 20, 2017 Location: 126 Clements Hall Time: 3:30-4:30 pm Abstract: The recent advance of single-cell RNAseq technology makes it possible to dissect heterogeneous tumor tissue samples and deconvolute the molecular signal into specific cell types. This technique generates high-dimensional gene expression profile data in a very sparse fashion. In a current study, by unsupervised clustering strategy and mapping the centroid of signal, we successfully identify multiple subpopulations of cell types and characterize their roles in tumor progression.
