single-cell analysis

Researchers built a single-cell gene expression atlas of premalignant lesions and early gastric cancer to find shifts that could portend disease progression.

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology-led team uncovered cell-type-specific transcriptional changes that occur early on in disease development.

In Cell this week: DNA-based survey of marine virus genomes,  single-cell atlas of tumor proteomic profiles, and more.

The researchers dubbed the cell the found a "revival stem cell" and reported that slow-cycling cell type relies on YAP1 signaling to expand to repopulate the intestine.

Ardigen has expanded into immuno-oncology, microbiomics, epigenomics, and CRISPR data analysis to support drug development and precision medicine.

The firm will work with investigators from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Virginia to validate its AIR system in CRISPR workflows.

In Genome Biology this week: genomic sequencing of milkweed bug, benchmark comparison of single-cell RNA sequencing platforms, and more.

Some of the mutational signatures the researchers observed were similar to ones previously seen in B cell tumors, underscoring the link between aging and cancer.

The Maxpar Direct Immune Profiling System could lower the threshold to doing mass cytometry due to ease of use, a core lab director said.

The effort, outlined in a Development Cell paper published online today, aims to complement the ongoing Human Cell Atlas initiative, but with a focus on pediatric health.
