Research project

Impact of clonal haematopoiesis with indeterminate potential mutations on transcription in single-cells (WP1)

Rationale and objectives

We need to understand how early mutations in clonal haematopoiesis with indeterminate potential (CHIP) provide a growth advantage and contribute to the emergence of myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS).

Therefore, we plan:

• To test and develop computational methods for the integration mutation status and gene expression of single cells.

• To determine specific transcriptional profile induced by selected mutations in CHIP and MDS on the single-cell level.

• To validate regulated genes in large cohorts of bulk and single cell data.
