Cellular Mapping Guided by 18th Century Math

Video   Feb 05, 2019

 

Single-cell RNA sequencing is a powerful technology that can reveal a lot about what happens in a group of cells as they develop.

But because the technology destroys a cell, it can only provide snapshots of the cells in a group at one point in time.

To really understand how cells develop over time, snapshots aren't good enough: scientists want to fill in the gaps between snapshots and string everything together into a movie.

Here Geoffrey Schiebinger explains how he and colleagues have figured out how to do just that, by tapping a powerful 18th century mathematical method called optimal transport.

Learn more about what Schiebinger and other Broad scientists are doing with optimal transport here.
