A map of transcriptional heterogeneity and regulatory variation in human microglia

Microglia, the tissue resident macrophages of the CNS, are implicated in a broad range of neurological pathologies, from acute brain injury to dementia. Here, we profiled gene expression variation in primary human microglia isolated from 141 patients undergoing neurosurgery. Using single cell and bulk RNA sequencing, we defined distinct cellular populations of acutely in vivo-activated microglia,…
