The single-cell transcriptional landscape of mammalian organogenesis

Friday, March 1st, 2019

Using single-cell combinatorial indexing, we profiled the
transcriptomes of around 2 million cells derived from 61 embryos staged between 9.5 and 13.5 days of gestation, in a single experiment.

FITBIT tracking activity

.@Fitbit’s 150 billion hours of heart data reveal secrets about health, by @Pogue One interesting observation: “You see heart rate go up before your family reunions, & then tend to really take a long time to come back after it.”
“Kind of wild to see how starting to use a treadmill — the first regular cardio workouts I’ve ever really gotten — visibly lowered my entire heart-rate range.
Also, it turns out that having kidney stones is bad for you. My heart rate went through the roof both times.
I was surprised and amused, though, to see the second most stressful events on my graph: holiday get-togethers.
“You see the heart rate go up before your family reunions, and then tend to really take a long time to come back after it,” notes McLean. In other words — who knew?? — holidays with the family are not a guarantee of peace, relaxation, and joy.

Seq. variants influencing…TF occupancy Uses allelic analysis to develop the CATO score, how variants alter binding

This approach resulted in a simple scoring scheme, termed contextual analysis of transcription factor occupancy (CATO), that provides a recalibrated probability of affecting the binding of any transcription factor, as well as a quantitatively ranked list of transcription factor families whose binding might be altered.
