UCSF/Fluidigm Paper Proves Shallow Sequencing of Related Single Cells Sufficient to Harvest Meaningful Biological InformationUCSF/Fluidigm Paper Proves Shallow Sequencing of Related Single Cells Sufficient to Harvest Meaningful Biological Information

Researchers found that increasing the number of cells studied, instead of sequencing to greater depth, provided a better understanding of the diversity and range of expression in total cell populations.
