Machine vision advances single-cell sequencing for small samples
The ability to sequence RNA in single cells has given scientists an unprecedented level of resolution in studying rare cell types. However, current approaches are designed to deal with a large number of cells, making it difficult to work with small samples. New research, published in Nature Methods on February 14, has described a technique using machine vision to detect cells and make single-cell RNA sequencing more efficient at a smaller scale.
