MultiMAP: a novel approach for integrating and visualizing multiomic single-cell and spatial data

REGISTER NOW

Multimodal data are rapidly growing in many fields, including single-cell biology. Emerging single-cell technologies are providing high-resolution measurements of different data types. Integrating these measurements will open avenues for more comprehensive studies of cellular identity, cell–cell interactions, developmental dynamics, and tissue structure.

This talk introduces a new approach for the integration of single-cell multiomics. Compared to other methods, MultiMAP is extremely fast and leverages the entire data set, enabling researchers to take full advantage of multiomic data. With scRNA-seq and scATAC-seq data generated simultaneously from the same single cells, we use MultiMAP to study transcription-factor (TF) expression and TF binding site accessibility during T-cell differentiation.
