Single-cell RNA-sequencing reveals widespread personalized, context-specific gene expression regulation in immune cells.

Here we present the 1M-scBloodNL study, in which we performed single-cell RNA-seq on 120 individuals of the Northern Netherlands population cohort Lifelines. For each individual peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) were sequenced in an unstimulated condition, and after 3 and 24 hour in vitro stimulation with C. albicans (CA), M. tuberculosis (MTB) and P. aeruginosa (PA), totalling approximately 1.3 million cells.
