In Science this week: four reviews examine what's known about the associations between genotype and phenotype, and more.

The team used this system to perform orthogonal and multiplexed genome engineering of endogenous targets using up to 25 individual CRISPR RNAs.

Speakers at this year's ABRF meeting described how they used single-cell tools in combination with other single-cell approaches and other methods.

ETH Zurich has moved to dismiss a professor accused of bullying, according to ScienceInsider.

Researchers have found genomic, transcriptomic, proteomic, and phenotypic variation in a comparison of HeLa cells across laboratories and over time.

Store It All as DNA

Researchers in Switzerland are investigating using DNA as a data-storage device.

A method developed at MIT creates polyacrylamide beads around droplets containing single cells to sequester bacterial genomes and allow for harsh lysis conditions; it then uses concatenated PCR and sequencing to address links between phylogeny and function.

The technique has the promise of enabling basic cancer research, and could also be used for in vitro screening of chemotherapeutic drug response.
