MS Looks to Transcriptomics for Answers on Neuronal Vulnerability

08:00 EDT 22 Jul 2019 | Genetic Engineering News

An international team of researchers used single cell transcriptomics to identify neuronal vulnerability in MS lesions. Combining single-nucleus RNA sequencing and spatial transcriptomics of frozen human brain samples from patients with MS, the study offers a more complete picture of regional and cell type-specific dysregulation during MS pathogenesis.
