Presenter: Brandon Sos from Kun Zhang’s lab at UCSD; Title: The Single Cell Transposome Hypersensitive Sites Sequencing (scTHS-seq) assay for Chromatin Accessibility and Assessment of Epigenetic States in the Human Adult Brain; 
Summary: Chromatin accessibility captures in vivo protein-chromosome binding status, and is considered an informative proxy for protein-DNA interactions. Current single cell chromatin accessibility assays result in sparse chromatin maps at high throughput or dense chromatin maps at low throughput. We present a high throughput transposome hypersensitive sites sequencing assay for highly sensitive characterization of chromatin accessibility in single cells, generating thousands of single cell datasets from the human adult visual and frontal cortex. Integrative analysis of transcriptomic snDrop-seq data and scTHS-seq data has allowed us to identify transcription factors and regulatory elements shaping the state of different brain cell types, and to map genetic risk factors of common human brain diseases to specific pathogenic cell types and subtypes.

Presenter:  Sara Linker; Title: Single-nucleus RNA-seq (snRNA-seq) reveals a unique transcriptional response in the dentate gyrus in response to hippocampal activation; 
Summary: Dentate granule cells (DGCs) are sparsely active within the mouse hippocampus. Through snRNA-seq we have examined the transcriptional response of hippocampal neurons to activity and identified that, despite their rare probability of activation, DGCs have an exaggerated activity-induced transcriptional response compared to other hippocampal populations. These results highlight the importance of the baseline cell state in determining the transcriptional response to neural activity.
