Sten Linnarsson Group
Our research focuses on single-cell biology, in particular applying single-cell expression analysis to discover the cell types and lineages of the mouse nervous system. The long-term goal of our research is to map the stable cellular states (‘cell types’) that mammalian organs are made of, and to understand the regulatory networks that induce and maintain them. To achieve these goals, we have developed technologies for extremely sensitive and accurate detection of RNA in single cells. We use advanced molecular biology, large-scale DNA sequencing, microfluidics and imaging.

Detailed atlas of the nervous system
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet have created a systematic and detailed map of the cell types of the mouse nervous system. The map, which can provide new clues about the origin of neurological diseases, is presented in the journal Cell.
