Research project

Enhancing the informative value of bulk bone marrow RNA-seq by inferring cell-type contributions (WP3)

Rationale and objectives

A large number of bulk RNA-seq data has already been generated from complex bone marrow (BM) samples. Understanding the contributions of different cell types and states will increase the diagnostic value of the data.

The project’s objectives are:

•To computationally dissect the contribution of different cell populations in bulk expression data of MDS patients.

•To validate the analysis with single-cell experiments using samples from the MDS patients.

•To assess the diagnostic and prognostic potential of the augmented information in CHIP, MDS and sAML.
