Summary of "Beyond bulk: a review of single cell transcriptomics methodologies and applications."

Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) is a promising approach to study the transcriptomes of individual cells in the brain and the central nervous system (CNS). This technology acts as a bridge between neuroscience, computational biology, and systems biology, enabling an unbiased and novel understanding of the cellular composition of the brain and CNS. Gene expression at the single cell resolution is often noisy, sparse, and high-dimensional, creating challenges for computational analysis of such data. In this review, we overview fundamental sample preparation and data analysis processes of scRNA-seq and provide a comparative perspective for analyzing and visualizing these data.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An organized procedure carried out by a select committee of professionals in evaluating the performance of other professionals in meeting the standards of their specialty. Review by peers is used by editors in the evaluation of articles and other papers submitted for publication. Peer review is used also in the evaluation of grant applications. It is applied also in evaluating the quality of health care provided to patients.

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.
