In this talk we introduce a mathematical model to describe temporal processes like embryonic
development and cellular reprogramming. We consider stochastic processes in gene expression
space to represent developing populations of cells, and we use optimal transport to recover
the temporal couplings of the process. We apply these ideas to study 315,000 single-cell RNA-sequencing profiles...   More >
