PhD position: Single-cell elucidation of the evolution of an embryonic transcriptional programme

Posted by on April 3rd, 2018

The project: Single-cell approaches are revolutionizing developmental biology. We can now  trace in time the behavior of each cell in a live developing organism (1). In parallel, single-cell transcriptomics and genomics gives access to the transcriptional state of each cell (2). Combination of these two approaches promises to unravel how genomic information translates into individual[…]
