Power analysis of single-cell RNA-sequencing experiments

Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) has become an established and powerful method to investigate transcriptomic cell-to-cell variation, thereby revealing new cell types and providing insights into developmental processes and transcriptional stochasticity. A key question is how the variety of available protocols ...

Reduction of Gene Expression Variability from Single Cells to Populations follows Simple Statistical Laws


Recent studies on single cells and population transcriptomics have revealed striking differences in global gene expression distributions. Single cells display highly variable expressions between cells, while cell populations present deterministic global patterns. The mechanisms governing the reduction of transcriptome-wide variability ...
