Single-cell analyses define a continuum of cell state and composition changes in the malignant transformation of polyps to colorectal cancer

Mapping molecular changes across malignant transformation We generated single-cell data for 81 samples collected from eight FAP and seven non-FAP donors (Fig. 1a and Supplementary Tables 1 and 2). For each tissue, we performed matched scATAC-seq and snRNA-seq (10x Genomics). We obtained high-quality single-cell chromatin accessibility profiles for 447,829 cells…

Metagenomics technology and microbial community diversity analysis methods

A large number of microorganisms in nature cannot be cultivated under laboratory conditions by pure culture methods, and the technical methods of traditional microbiology limit the research on environmental microorganisms. The rapid development of high-throughput omics technology has enabled humans to have an unprecedented understanding of the complex microbial communities…

scrnaseq – Integrating scRNA-seq data using raw data

I believe when you say alignment, you mean aligning reads to a genome (sometimes to transcriptome) and count these to get count matrices. In the aforementioned paper, however, what is meant is “bringing different data sets to a level where they can be compared/integrated/…”. Basically scRNA-seq data are heavily prone…

The Evolving Treatment Landscape of Cholangiocarcinoma

Recent genomic profiling studies revealed that approximately 40% of patients with biliary tract cancers harbor actionable genomic mutations. The advances in the understanding and characterization of biliary tract cancers (BTCs), particularly intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (iCCA), and genomic profiling over the past decade have led to a rapid expansion of available treatment…

Mutational Analysis of Mitochondrial tRNA Genes

Introduction Diabetes is a very complex disease characterized by the presence of chronic hyperglycemia. Clinically, insulin-dependent type 1 and non-insulin-dependent type 2 are the main types of diabetes. Among them, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM, [MIM125853]) is a common endocrine disorder affecting approximately 10% of adult population.1 In most cases,…
