Congratulations to Nagham Khouri-Farah for winning best poster at the Institute for Systems Genomics Networking Event on November 8, 2022. The poster was titled: “Purkinje Cell Heterogeneity Orchestrates Mammalian Cerebellar Development”.
Congratulations to Nagham Khouri Farah for receiving the 1st place Best Student Poster Award on the 39th Annual Graduate Student Research Day. Also, congratulations to her for being accepted for an oral presentation at the 2022 Gordon Research Conference on Neural Development.
Using integrated single-cell RNA and ATAC analyses, we resolved developmental trajectories of cerebellar progenitors, identified putative trans- and cis-elements that control cell state transition, and reverse-engineered gene regulatory networks of each cerebellar cell type. Check out the links to the paper and the datasets and computer codes.
A new manuscript on integrated single-cell RNA- and ATAC-seq analysis of embryonic mouse cerebellum is out. Check out the preprint on bioRxiv.
A new five-year research grant is awarded by NIH to study the combinatorial function of Foxp1/2/4 in Purkinje cell diversification and cerebellar development.
