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 to understanding immunity. Single-cell transcriptomics technologies provide high-dimensional assessment of the transcriptional states of immune cells and have been successfully applied to discover new immune cell types, reveal haematopoietic lineages, identify gene modules dictating immune responses and investigate lymphocyte antigen receptor diversity. In this review, we discuss the impact and applications of single-cell RNA sequencing technologies in immunology.

Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) is a powerful tool to study immune cells, which enables an unbiased way to discover novel cell populations, biological meaningful cellular heterogeneity, and cel...
The influenza virus is a major cause of morbidity and mortality worldwide. Yet, both the impact of intracellular viral replication and the variation in host response across different cell types remain...
Cancer is characterized by intra-tumor heterogeneity, the presence of distinct cell populations with distinct complements of somatic mutations, which include single-nucleotide variants (SNVs) and copy...
Single cell transcriptomics is critical for understanding cellular heterogeneity and identification of novel cell types. Leveraging the recent advances in single cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-Seq) techno...
The difficulty of studying small tissue samples and rare cell populations have been some of the main limitations in performing efficient translational studies of immune mediated diseases. Many of thes...
This is an observational, case--control study with a single blood draw among two cohorts, patients with CVID and healthy controls. Samples will be analyzed by cytometry (CyTOF) to simultan...
This is an observational, case-control study with a single blood draw among two cohorts, patients with antibody deficiency (e.g., CVID) and healthy controls. Samples will be analyzed by ma...
The purpose of this study is to analyse the phenotype in a sub-population of adults with severe primary immunodeficiency with lymphoproliferation and neutropenia and to decipher the possib...
The immune system is composed of diverse cell types with different functions that act together in order to defend against infection. This pilot study will test a new technology for studyin...
Biological study on Richter Syndrome (RS), an agressive lymphoma that arises from Chronic Lymphocytice Leukemia (CLL). RS presents with the same histological aspect as primitive Diffuse La...
Regeneration of normal immune function after immune depleting procedures or infections (e.g., HEMATOPOIETIC STEM CELL TRANSPLANTATION). Delayed and incomplete reconstitution of the ADAPTIVE IMMUNE system in particular involving T-CELLS is associated with increase or relapse of infection.
The act or fact of grasping the meaning, nature, or importance of; understanding. (American Heritage Dictionary, 4th ed) Includes understanding by a patient or research subject of information disclosed orally or in writing.
Techniques of nucleotide sequence analysis that increase the range, complexity, sensitivity, and accuracy of results by greatly increasing the scale of operations and thus the number of nucleotides, and the number of copies of each nucleotide sequenced. The sequencing may be done by analysis of the synthesis or ligation products, hybridization to preexisting sequences, etc.
A genotoxicological technique for measuring DNA damage in an individual cell using single-cell gel electrophoresis. Cell DNA fragments assume a "comet with tail" formation on electrophoresis and are detected with an image analysis system. Alkaline assay conditions facilitate sensitive detection of single-strand damage.
Deliberate stimulation of the host's immune response. ACTIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of ANTIGENS or IMMUNOLOGIC ADJUVANTS. PASSIVE IMMUNIZATION involves administration of IMMUNE SERA or LYMPHOCYTES or their extracts (e.g., transfer factor, immune RNA) or transplantation of immunocompetent cell producing tissue (thymus or bone marrow).
DNA sequencing is the process of determining the precise order of nucleotides within a DNA molecule. During DNA sequencing, the bases of a small fragment of DNA are sequentially identified from signals emitted as each fragment is re-synthesized from a ...
