Recovering Lost Information in Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing

Recovering Lost Information in Single-Cell RNA-Sequencing

MIT researchers have greatly boosted the amount of information that can be obtained using Seq-Well, a technique for rapidly sequencing RNA from single cells. This advance should enable scientists to learn much more about the critical genes that are expressed in each cell, and help them to discover subtle differences between healthy and diseased cells for designing new preventions and cures. This image illustrates the improved resolution, right, using the new technique. Credit: MIT.
