DNA accessibility, gene expression jointly profiled in thousands of cells: New assay advances research on how various cells types interpret their genetic code

A new assay can concurrently trace, in thousands of different cells, the marks that shape what each cell's genome will do -- the epigenome -- and the copies of the instructions themselves -- the transcriptome. The epigenome and transcriptome are part of the molecular biology that converts the genetic blueprint of DNA into tools and materials for living cells.
