Techniques Nuc-seq, Div-Seq, and Dronc-Seq are allow for unbiased analysis of any complex tissue. Nuc-Seq, a scalable single nucleus RNA-Seq method, can sensitively identify closely related cell types, including within the adult hippocampus. Div-seq combines Nuc-Seq with EdU-mediated labeling of proliferating cells, allowing tracking of transcriptional dynamics of newborn neurons in an adult neurogenic region in the hippocampus. Dronc-Seq uses a microfluidic device to co-encapsulate individual nuclei in reverse emulsion aqueous droplets in an oil medium together with one uniquely barcoded mRNA-capture bead.
