About this collection

The field of droplet-based single-cell sequencing field has made increasing advances in recent years. Large numbers of studies are underway to collect and explore the new information that is now accessible with single-cell RNA-seq. Improvements to microfluidics are advancing rapidly and extensions to other sequencing methods are also being developed, enabling investigations to probe information beyond mRNA alone. This has rapidly become a burgeoning field, where microfluidic techniques are essential and where droplet-based microfluidics has enabled a major advance. The collection highlights research focussing on the interface between the technological advancements and high impact applications of droplet-based single-cell sequencing. This on-going collection is collated by Thought Leader David Weitz and the Lab on a Chip Editorial Office.
