Christopher Yau will be relocating to the Big Data Institute at the University of Oxford in February 2022 to take up a position as Senior Research Fellow between the Department of Women’s and Reproductive Health and the Nuffield Department of Population Health. Future recruitment to the group for postdocs and students will be via the University of Oxford.
Our latest paper, based on the thesis work of former DPhil student Zhiyuan, has been published in Genome Biology. CIDER: an interpretable meta-clustering framework for single-cell RNA-seq data integration and evaluation describes a meta-clustering workflow based on inter-group similarity measures. We demonstrate that CIDER outperforms other scRNA-Seq clustering methods and integration approaches in both simulated and real datasets. Moreover, we show that CIDER can be used to assess the biological correctness of integration in real datasets, while it does not require the existence of prior cellular annotations.
Kaspar Martens will present his latest work at the NeurIPS Workshop “Learning Meaningful Representations of Life” Rarity: Discovering rare cell populations from single-cell imaging data. The work arises from his Turing-Crick Biomedical Award which supports a collaboration between the Alan Turing Institute and the Ciccarelli Group at Kings College London and the Francis Crick Institute.
Former DPhil student Zhiyuan with the Ovarian Cancer Lab have created a new public engagement video showcasing our work on single cell sequencing of ovarian cancer.
