NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) — Two research groups at Harvard University have independently developed droplet-based methods for profiling the transcriptomes of thousands of individual cells at low cost and high speed.

Both methods use droplet microfluidic technology developed in David Weitz's lab at the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard, but they differ in their approaches for barcoding the mRNA of single cells for next-generation sequencing and other technical aspects.
