Genetics: Taking single-cell transcriptomics to the bedside

05:34 EDT 2 Aug 2017 | Nature Publishing

Important biological questions can be addressed by interrogating the transcriptomes of cancer cells. In a recently published landmark study, Giustacchini and collaborators used a single-cell approach to analyse mRNA of cancer cells derived from patients with chronic myeloid leukaemia. Herein, we discuss how this approach could be used to address relevant clinical questions.
