    Specification of diverse cell types during early neurogenesis of the mouse cerebellum

    John W Wizeman et al.
    Single-cell RNA sequencing resolves inter- and intra-population heterogeneity, identifies rare cell types, and reconstructs specification trajectories during early neurogenesis of the mouse cerebellum.
