Detailed Characterization of neurons of the murine brain 

Steuernagel, L.;  Brüning, Jens C.
Abteilung „Neuronal Control of Metabolism“
Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) allows the analysis of gene expression patterns in individual cells, enabling the characterisation of cell types based on their molecular identity. This allows to precisely describe the heterogeneity of different neurons in the brain in an unbiased manner. We built a comprehensive atlas of cell types of the hypothalamus, a brain region which plays a central role in the regulation of metabolism, by integrating published and novel data sets.
