This Week in Science

In Science this week, a team led by Harvard Medical School's George Church report on a new way to localize RNA levels within cells using a novel fluorescent in situ RNA sequencing technique, which they dubbed FISSEQ. In FISSEQ, stably cross-linked cDNA amplicons are sequenced within a biological sample. The scientists used the approach with fibroblasts with a simulated wound-healing assay to identify cell-to-cell differences in gene expression.
