Title of the talk: Single Cell Epigenomic Analysis of the Anatomy and Neuronal Circuitry of the Brain
Our group develops and applies single cell genomic technologies to identify both the molecular signatures of individual neuronal cell types in the mammalian brain and their synaptic partners. We have developed a variety of multi-omic assays including DNA methylation, RNA-seq, chromatin accessibility and 3D structure to study single neurons across the brain. These detailed cell atlases reveal novel cellular taxonomy in the brain and elucidate spatial diversification in fine cell subtypes. Single cell epigenomics allows identification of cell type-specific DNA regulatory elements, providing the potential to develop new genetic tools to assess brain cell functions with greater precision.
Host: Stefania Giacomello and Björn Nystedt
