Brief summary of the scientific questionSingle-cell RNA-seq (scRNA-seq) of pancreatic islets have reported on α- and β-cell gene expression in mice and subjects of predominantly European ancestry. The authors aimed to assess these findings in East-Asian islet-cells.
Brief summary of the bioinformatics processingmRNA levels between-samples were normalized by quantile normalization before statistical analysis. Hierarchical clustering of 294 cells that passed QC procedures were performed. The authors excluded 47 exocrine cells (with high REG1A expression) and 18 doublet cells and performed additional hierarchical clustering and PCA analyses based on INS, GCG and SST transcript expression levels. ANOVA analyses were performed to identify transcripts that were differentially expressed between INS expressing cells and high GCG expressing cells.
