Princeton researcher bringing single-cell gene expression studies to a benchtop near you

By combining CRISPR-based approaches with single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq), scientists can learn a lot about what genes do and how they are controlled. However, technical hurdles and cost concerns have hampered this approach. New work by Princeton researcher Britt Adamson and colleagues breaks down these barriers, providing a simpler and cheaper way for scientists to reap their molecular harvest.
