Capturing Droplets in Beads, Epic-PCR Enables Massively Parallel Single-Cell Sequencing | GenomeWeb

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – A team led by researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology has developed a method to link phylogeny and function in each of the millions of individual cells in a microbial community with a single high-throughput experiment.  

The droplet-based technique is called Emulsion, Paired Isolation, and Concatenation PCR, or epic-PCR.
