Single-cell RNA-Seq Trajectory Analysis Review
trajectory analysis umap 1

Cellular state often exists in a continuum rather than distinct phases. A prime example is cell development and differentiation. With single-cell RNA-Seq, researchers can observe this continuum of transcriptomic changes via analysis of individual cells. The need to computationally model these dynamics leads to the birth of single-cell RNA-seq trajectory […]

The Basics of DESeq2 – A Powerful Tool in Differential Expression Analysis for Single-cell RNA-Seq

Differential expression analysis is a common step in a Single-cell RNA-Seq data analysis workflow. In our previous post, we have given an overview of differential expression analysis tools in single-cell RNA-Seq. This time, we’d like to discuss a frequently used tool – DESeq2 (Love, Huber, & Anders, 2014).  According to […]

The Maze of Differential Gene Expression Analysis in Single-cell RNA-Seq

Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) unfolds biological processes at individual cell resolution. One key step that makes up the power of scRNA-seq is the spotting of differentially expressed (DE) genes. However, characteristics like high heterogeneity and data sparsity (high zero counts) are the main obstacles in finding DE genes in scRNA-seq […]

BioTuring Single-cell Browser: a modern interactive single-cell database with 3D visualizations and downstream analyses

Single-cell sequencing technologies have brought up an unprecedented level of resolution to omics studies with extremely detailed views into individual cells’ expression patterns. With the emergence of drop-based sequencing methods, the resolution now even comes with scale and efficiency. In a single experiment, scientists can now profile hundreds of thousands […]

BioTuring Browser: the software to resolve major challenges in single-cell RNA-seq data analysis

Single-cell RNA-seq technologies have opened up a completely new era for transcriptomic studies. For the first time ever, scientists can look at individual transcriptomic profiles of millions of cells, and better understand how each cell functions in a tissue. Yet science is confronting bigger challenges analyzing these massive amounts of […]
