Image2_Colon Cancer-Related Genes Identification and Function Study Based on Single-Cell Multi-Omics Integration.TIF
Transcriptomes and DNA methylation of colon cancer at the single-cell level are used to identify marker genes and improve diagnoses and therapies. Seven colon cancer subtypes are recognized based on the single-cell RNA sequence, and the differentially expressed genes regulated by dysregulated methylation are identified as marker genes for different types of colon cancer. Compared with normal colon cells, marker genes of different types show very obvious specificity, especially upregulated genes in tumors. Functional enrichment analysis for marker genes indicates a possible relation between colon cancer and nervous system disease, moreover, the weak immune system is verified in colon cancer. The heightened expression of markers and the reduction of methylation in colon cancer promote tumor development in an extensive mechanism so that there is no biological process that can be enriched in different types.
