OUR MISSION is to unlock the potential of single-cell genomics for human health and basic research by advancing the technology and collaborating with innovative, diverse groups across the Caltech campus.
Droplet-based single-cell profiling is transforming biology, and we are breaking new ground in this accelerating field. Our goal is to use single-cell technology as an experimental engine to learn how to steer and manipulate cells and tissues to perform controlled functions. We achieve this by scaling up experimentation and designing computational tools to extract meaningful insights from complex, high-dimensional single-cell data.

WHAT’S NEW AT SPEC
Congrats to Xiaoqiao Chen for her new paper on using active support vector machines (activeSVM) to discover minimal gene sets
Check out the new paper here! https://www.nature.com/articles/s43588-022-00263-8 Xiaoqiao's method assembles minimal lists of highly informative genes using an iterative SVM approach. Each iteration uses only a small numbers of cells…
