Sphinx: modeling transcriptional heterogeneity in single-cell RNA-Seq

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Jinghua GuWei Lin


The significance of single cell transcription resides not only in the cumulative expression strength of the cell population but also in its heterogeneity. We propose a new model that improves the detection of changes in the transcriptional heterogeneity pattern of RNAseq data using two heterogeneity parameters: "burst proportion" and "burst magnitude", whose changes are validated using RNA FISH. Transcriptional "cobursting" governed by distinct mechanisms during myoblast proliferation and differentiation, is described here.
