Genome-Wide Hypothesis Generation for Single-Cell Expression via Latent Spaces

Focus Latent Spaces

Project Goal

To build enabling software and datasets for latent-space transformations of Human Cell Atlas data.

Results & Resources

The Greene lab developed a machine learning approach, MultiPLIER, that extracts latent variables from large collections of public data. Using this approach, they found that in the context of rare disease, it is possible to identify cell types and processes that are misregulated in small, existing bulk datasets.
