  • Forum functions may break temporarily...combating spam.

    In an effort to reduce the likelihood of more private messaging spam, I am making some changes to the usergroups. Disabling private messaging for new users with < X posts will hopefully prevent all but the most diligent spammer.

    If some forum functions don't seem to work, or you get a "permission denied" error, that's me messing with things behind the scenes. Shouldn't take long.

    OK, I'm apparently done. New users will now not have PM permissions until they post a small number of posts. If you desperately need to send a PM, post in the Introductions forum.

    This now gives us three layers of spam protection:

    1. New users (ip, username, email addy) screened against a known spammer blacklist.

    2. First XX posts for new users are screened very stringently for spam/links/etc, by Akismet.

    3. Users with less than X posts cannot use PM system.

    Hopefully this helps, and apologies if you get caught in the crossfire, just email [email protected] and I will take care of it ASAP.

      A Brief Overview and Common Challenges in Single-cell Sequencing Analysis
      by seqadmin

      ​​​​​​The introduction of single-cell sequencing has advanced the ability to study cell-to-cell heterogeneity. Its use has improved our understanding of somatic mutations1, cell lineages2, cellular diversity and regulation3, and development in multicellular organisms4. Single-cell sequencing encompasses hundreds of techniques with different approaches to studying the genomes, transcriptomes, epigenomes, and other omics of individual cells. The analysis of single-cell sequencing data i...

      Introduction to Single-Cell Sequencing
      by seqadmin
      Single-cell sequencing is a technique used to investigate the genome, transcriptome, epigenome, and other omics of individual cells using high-throughput sequencing. This technology has provided many scientific breakthroughs and continues to be applied across many fields, including microbiology, oncology, immunology, neurobiology, precision medicine, and stem cell research.

      The advancement of single-cell sequencing began in 2009 when Tang et al. investigated the single-cell transcriptomes
