Single-cell RNAseq of whole mouse E8.25 embryos

ABSTRACT: Gastrulation represents a pivotal point in mammalian development, when the basic body plan is established and cells are specified into one of the three germ layers. This is followed by rapid diversification into specific lineages and the appearance of the various cell types required to build each of the organs. The rich variety of cell types present at this stage has never been rigorously characterised in any mammalian organism, and thus insight into cell fate decisions and the underlying regulatory networks have been inaccessible. We have used droplet based single-cell RNA-sequencing to address this by profiling ~7000 cells from three E8.25 mouse embryos.

During gastrulation, cell types from all three germ layers are specified and the basic body plan is established <sup>1</sup> . However, molecular analysis of this key developmental stage has been hampered by limited cell numbers and a paucity of markers. Single-cell RNA sequencing circumvents these problems, but has so far been limited to specific organ systems <sup>2</sup> . Here, we report single-cell transcriptomic characterization of >20,000 cells immediately following gastrulation at E8.25  ...[more]
