The IPS2 gears up for single-cell omics.

The expertise in transcriptomics and epigenomics of the SPOmics and Epitrans platforms will now reach the single-cell scale thanks to the acquisition of the Chromium system from 10xGenomics. First equipment of this type at the university of Paris-Saclay, this nanodroplet-based system allows the analysis of the transcriptome and part of the epigenome of each individual cell among a population of several thousand cells. While very popular in animal biology, the single-cell technology is still in its infancy in plant biology but holds the promises to bring fundamentally new insights into plant development and responses to the environment.
