BMC Genomics, BMC Medical Genomics, and BMC Bioinformatics called for submissions to a Collection on Single-cell technologies. Recent years have seen rapid progress in the development of single-cell sequencing technologies. They provide valuable insights into complex biological systems as well as allow researchers to make new discoveries. These powerful methods are used, for example, to generate high resolution transcriptomes, identify complex and rare cell populations, discover regulatory relationships between genes and assess cellular heterogeneity.
