A brief review of single-cell transcriptomic technologies.

08:00 EDT 1st September 2017 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "A brief review of single-cell transcriptomic technologies."

In recent years, there has been an effort to develop new technologies for measuring gene expression and sequence information from thousands of individual cells. Large data sets that were obtained using these 'single cell' technologies have allowed scientists to address fundamental questions in biomedicine ranging from stems cells and development to cancer and immunology. Here, we provide a brief review of recent developments in single-cell technology. Our intention is to provide a quick background for newcomers to the field as well as a deeper description of some of the leading technologies to date.

The impact of single-cell RNA sequencing on understanding the functional organization of the immune system.

Application of single-cell genomics technologies has revolutionized our approach to study the immune system. Unravelling the functional diversity of immune cells and their coordinated response is key ...

Mapping the Mouse Cell Atlas by Microwell-Seq.

Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) technologies are poised to reshape the current cell-type classification system. However, a transcriptome-based single-cell atlas has not been achieved for comple...

Heterogeneity of Metazoan Cells and Beyond: To Integrative Analysis of Cellular Populations at Single-Cell Level.

In this paper, we review some of the recent advances in cellular heterogeneity and single-cell analysis methods. In modern research of cellular heterogeneity, there are four major approaches: analysis...

Assessing Inequality in Transcriptomic Data.

Two studies in this issue of Cell Systems use the Gini index from economics to benchmark and quantify gene expression heterogeneity in single-cell or bulk RNA-seq datasets.

Parallel Clustering of Single Cell Transcriptomic Data with Split-Merge Sampling on Dirichlet Process Mixtures.

With the development of droplet based systems, massive single cell transcriptome data has become available, which enables analysis of cellular and molecular processes at single cell resolution and is ...

Analysis of Transcriptomic Profile of Graft-versus-host Disease (GHVD) After Allogeneic Grafting of Hematopoietic Stem Cells

Graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) is a frequent and severe complication of hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSC), and is responsible for significant early mortality despite prophyla...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Review of the medical necessity of hospital or other health facility admissions, upon or within a short time following an admission, and periodic review of services provided during the course of treatment.

Formal programs for assessing drug prescription against some standard. Drug utilization review may consider clinical appropriateness, cost effectiveness, and, in some cases, outcomes. Review is usually retrospective, but some analysis may be done before drugs are dispensed (as in computer systems which advise physicians when prescriptions are entered). Drug utilization review is mandated for Medicaid programs beginning in 1993.

Organizations representing designated geographic areas which have contracts under the PRO program to review the medical necessity, appropriateness, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care received by Medicare beneficiaries. Peer Review Improvement Act, PL 97-248, 1982.

Published materials which provide an examination of recent or current literature. Review articles can cover a wide range of subject matter at various levels of completeness and comprehensiveness based on analyses of literature that may include research findings. The review may reflect the state of the art. It also includes reviews as a literary form.

Review of claims by insurance companies to determine liability and amount of payment for various services. The review may also include determination of eligibility of the claimant or beneficiary or of the provider of the benefit; determination that the benefit is covered or not payable under another policy; or determination that the service was necessary and of reasonable cost and quality.
