Jun 2021. We join the Neuro-Omics Inititaitve led by Liqun Luo, Alice Ting, and Steve Quake, which is a part of the Wu Tasi Big Ideas in Neuroscience program. In this project, we will use single-cell sequencing to compare neuronal cell types across different species to understand how nervous system evolved. (link)
