I have analysed my time series single cell data with Scuba algorithm but that says that there is no bifurcations in my data and outputted a single chain of 4 states with no branching like below figure:

output of Scuba algorithm: a linear flow

Sorry, I googled but I am not quite sure what this means

What does it mean this figure?

The most obvious interpretation is that the four cell lines are related in a linear pathway rather than a branching one.
