Glossary for single-cell RNA sequencing

Many fields of study use terms that are pretty much restricted to that field of study. This is also true for the field of single-cell RNA sequencing, which itself has different names: single-cell transcriptome sequencing, single-cell transcriptomics, and single-cell gene expression profiling. In this glossary, you can find common terminology from the single-cell RNA sequencing…

Prediction of future relapse in MLL-rearranged infant ALL by single-cell RNA sequencing

In this blog, we describe how single-cell RNA sequencing allowed to predict which MLL- rearranged infant acute lymphoblastic leukemia (MLL-r iALL) patients are at risk of relapse. Furthermore, it allowed for characterization of the nature of relapse-predicting cells. Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) in infants is often driven by a specific mutation, in which a part…
