This Week in Cell

The University of Washington's Jay Shendure and colleagues present a strategy for mapping enhancers and their gene targets across the genome with a combination of CRISPR/Cas9-based editing and single-cell RNA sequencing. The team's "expression quantitative trait locus (eQTL)-inspired framework" upends potential gene regulators in individual cells with random CRISPR interference events before profiling the single cell transcriptomes.
