NBD Seminar Series: Genomic insights into human brain development, disease and evolution (via Zoom)


We have sequenced mRNA from single human progenitor cells and young neurons across developmental timepoints for unbiased classification of cell identity and for detection of activated signaling pathways. Our genomic data has informed a novel model of primate corticogenesis, identified mechanisms of arealization, suggested a relationship between oRG cells and brain tumors, and benchmarked in vitro organoid models of brain development and disease.
