The mammalian immune landscape - one cell at a time

The advent of genomic tools has unequivocally changed our fundamental understanding of biology. Recent technological advances have allowed us to peer ever deeper into the complexities of life, exploring genomic landscapes at the level of individual cells. These single cell techniques have yielded countless novel insights into how our bodies develop and function. Study of the immune system remains a ripe area for exploration using these techniques. In this project, you will learn the basics of experimental design, data generation and analysis in single cell genomic assays. We will begin by covering the foundations of these technologies before moving onto analyzing real world data. Based on your particular interests we will identify a question that can be answered through re-analysis of existing data. There are thousands of published datasets which can be used so the scope of this project is likely limitless. Following identification of the specific research question we will work to develop this into an essay or scientific manuscript.
