Please see the corresponding app by the Pfister lab (DKFZ, KiTZ) for the analyses of the human data in the context of childhood brain tumors


Single nucleus RNA sequencing data were generated from frozen cerebellum samples from human, mouse and opossum at different developmental stages. We used 10x Genomics 3' Chromium protocol (version 2 and 3).
