Outcome: Rejected (im.).

Despite having a total of 7 figures and 8 supplementary figures, it was unclear for the editors what added value the paper had for the scientific knowledge. Moreover , single cell RNAseq was considered to be a standard technique in the field and was lacking in our manuscript. Most of the comments were rebuttable, however the Editor felt that pushing the paper to external review would only make us lose time as we would probably receive another rejection.
