In a conversation with the Broad community, core institute members Feng Zhang and David Liu, institute member and clinical geneticist Heidi Rehm, and director of global policy initiatives Bina Venkataraman considered a range of scientific, medical, ethical, and societal concerns raised by reports that a researcher in China engineered the “world’s first genetically edited babies.”

Naomi Habib and Yinqing Li, researchers from the labs of Broad core institute members Aviv Regev and Feng Zhang, report on a new contribution to the single-cell analysis toolkit. Their method combines the sequencing of RNA from isolated nuclei (sNuc-Seq), and tagging of regenerating cells (Div-Seq), to enable the study of previously intractable and rare cell types in the brain.
