Single cell RNA-seq and spatial transcriptomic methods reveal cellular heterogeneity previously hidden by bulk sequencing. As these technologies evolve, they enable researchers to focus on rare cell populations and how they influence human health and development. In this webinar brought to you by The Scientist, Sebastian Lewandowski and Philip Hasel will explore the latest biological insights learned from studying rare cell populations in the nervous system.

Topics to be covered

  • Discovering early vascular cell contributions to ALS neurodegeneration using single-cell methods
  • Applying integrative multimodal sequencing to study glial subtypes in the brain
