single-cell sequencing

Fluidigm has launched its mRNA sequencing application for its C1 Single-Cell Auto Prep System to enable automated preparation of 96 cells for single-cell transcriptome sequencing on Illumina systems.

Building on a method that combines patch-clamp with single-cell transcriptome sequencing, researchers from the University of Southern California in Los Angeles are applying it to study gene expression variation in neurons.

Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania plan to use single-cell transcriptome sequencing and functional genomics technology to study transcriptome variability in cardiac cells and neurons.
