Research synopsis: 

Rotation Advisor: Shruti Sharma, PhD

The Sharma lab is trying to understand and identify B cell populations in mice that were stratified by age and STING KO status. Using single cell RNA sequencing, I was able to see variations in transcriptional levels of mRNA as well as different distributions of B cell subsets in various tissues including the liver, kidney, heart, and brain. These data provide insight into the changes in B cell populations and function based on age and the absence of the cGAS-STING pathway in each tissue.
