How to distinguish malignant vs non-malignant cells based on gene expression data?

Hi all,

I have a data set of scRNA-seq of a tumor bulk which consists of malignant and non-malignant cells. I was wondering how I can distinguish these cells based on single cell expression profiles?

Thanks,

You can find the logic in various papers. For example, in neuronal cancers microglia and enothelial celsl would be non-malignant? Depends on the cancer type also. You also have to have knowledge about the wild type tissue composition.

I am trying to retrieve data of endothelial cells in a malignant tumor, I was thinking of using SINCERA but I have problem installing its package in R

You can use general endothelial markers. Reading some related papers will give you an idea. Ask more specific question like how to do analysis rather than a conceptual question. Different people will address it differently, and ask about problems you are facing in that specific algorithm.Just my opinion.

Hi jabbari,

Please go through the Seurat vignettes: SEURAT - R toolkit for single cell genomics.

Best of luck with it!
