This Week in Science

In Science this week, a team from biotech firm Cellular Research report on a new technique for reconstructing gene expression in thousands of cells individually, all without the need for robotics or automation. By loading plastic beads with cell- and molecular-barcoding capture probes, the researchers were able to uniquely label transcripts and reconstruct the digital gene expression profile of thousands of individual cells in a single experiment.
