CDB FACULTY CANDIDATE 
SPECIAL SEMINAR PRESENTATION:

Cell type, stage, and heterogeneity: single-cell analysis in the nervous system

The regulatory mechanisms by which neurons coordinate their physiology and connectivity are not well understood. Drosophila olfactory system, consisting of 50 types of olfactory receptor neurons and 50 types of projection neurons that form one-to-one connections, provides a powerful model to study this question. In this talk, I will first present the application of single-cell RNAseq on classifying olfactory neurons. Then, I will discuss our recent work about how single-cell sequencing helped us identify molecular mechanisms that coordinate olfactory receptor expression and neural wiring.
