Simultaneous advances in biochemical techniques and computing power in the early 21st century have transformed the field of biology by allowing for the generation of comprehensive large-scale molecular datasets. At Janelia, we will characterize cell types in the brain using transcriptome-wide data from single cells and small populations of cells to uncover the molecular grammar underlying the components of the nervous system and their connections. Ultimately, linking gene expression and epigenetic information to other phenotypes – including lineage, neuronal connectivity, and cell-cell communication – is crucial to understanding the control of neuronal identity.
