New preprint: Regulatory networks controlling sex differences in the kidney

Ivy’s paper is out now! In a large collaboration led by the McMahon lab together with our lab & and the labs of Lior Pachter & Junhyong Kim we investigated the origins of sex differences in the mammalian kidney. Did you know that male and female kidneys have highly diverged gene expression programs in proximal tubule cells?! Through time-course RNA-seq coupled with joint multiomics (assaying scRNA-seq + scATAC-seq) of WT and AR-ko kidneys we discovered how Androgen receptor controls the sex dimorphism of cell fates in the kidney.
