USC Scientists Developing Platform to Gauge Single-Cell Gene Expression in Tissue Samples | GenomeWeb

Scientists from the University of Southern California have been awarded $246,000 from the National Institutes of Health for the first year of a two-year project to develop a high-throughput, single-cell PCR method for analyzing genetic heterogeneity in tissue samples.

The technique, which combines attributes of tissue imaging, digital PCR, and real-time PCR, is expected to provide researchers with a tool to study low-frequency cancer-related mutations in morphologically intact tissue samples.
