Taubman Technology Talk: “The United States of Single Cells”

February 7, 2020

Technological developments have enabled high-throughput profiling of single-cell gene expression, epigenetic regulation, and spatial position within complex tissues, providing an opportunity to define the features that delineate cell types and states. However, this task requires sophisticated computational methods for integrating diverse single-cell datasets from multiple experiments and biological contexts. Joshua Welch, PhD, will cover how metagene factors inferred by integrative nonnegative matrix factorization provide quantitative definition of cellular identity and its variation across biological contexts, allowing robust and scalable integration of highly heterogeneous single-cell datasets. Dr. Welch is an Assistant Professor of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics and Computer Science and Engineering at…
