High-resolution genomic map gives scientists unprecedented view of brain development: Detailed measurements of genes in individual brain cells allows scientists to trace specific developmental traject
The database will enable future studies tracing the cellular origins of childhood brain tumors such as medulloblastoma, astrocytoma and ependymoma. Most such previous brain developmental studies analyzed changes in mixes of different brain cell types or studied a limited number of genes. To compile their data, scientists performed RNA-seq analyses of 39,245 brain cells during 12 time points of brain development. The Cell Seek interface will enable researchers worldwide to glean insight into brain development from the data, Gawad said.
