Title: Two-phase differential expression analysis for single cell RNA-seq

Abstract: Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has brought the study of the transcriptome to higher resolution and makes it possible for scientists to provide answers with more clarity to the question of ‘differential expression’. Specifically, it allows us to observe binary (On/Off) as well as continuous (the amount...   More >

Full-length alternative transcript isoform analysis with nanopore sequencing

Abstract:
Our group aims to understand the mechanisms of alternative RNA splicing regulation and splicing dysregulation in cancer. Short-read, high-throughput cDNA sequencing (RNA-Seq) has revolutionized our ability to profile RNA splicing; however, this approach cannot capture the full complexity of RNA...   More >
