Single-cell sequencing technologies have emerged to address new and longstanding biological and biomedical questions. Previous studies focused on the analysis of bulk tissue samples composed of millions of cells. However, the genomes within the cells of an individual multicellular organism are not always the same. In this study, we aimed to identify the crucial and characteristically expressed genes that may play functional roles in tissue development and organogenesis, by analyzing a single-cell transcriptomic atlas of mice. We identified the most relevant gene features and decision rules classifying 18 cell categories, providing a list of genes that may perform important functions in the process of tissue development because of their tissue-specific expression patterns. These genes may serve as biomarkers to identify the origin of unknown cell subgroups so as to recognize specific cell stages/states during the dynamic process, and also be applied as potential therapy targets for developmental disorders.
