Abstract: Cells make fate decisions in response to dynamic environments and multicellular structure emerges from interplays among cells in space and time. The recent single-cell genomics technology provides an unprecedented opportunity to profile cells. However, those measurements are taken as snapshots for groups of individual cells with only static information. Can one infer interactions among cells from such datasets? Is it possible to recover spatial information from non-spatial datasets? How to obtain temporal relationships of cells from the static measurements? In this talk I will present our newly developed computational tools that reconstruct interactions and spatiotemporal relationships for cells using single-cell RNA-seq, ATAC-seq, and spatial transcriptomics datasets. Through applications of those methods to systems in development and regeneration, we show the discovery power of such methods and identify areas for further development in spatiotemporal reconstruction.
