New technique uses high-throughput sequencing to obtain ultra-high-resolution images of gene expression

The 30,000 or so genes making up the human genome contain the instructions vital to life. Yet each of our cells expresses only a subset of these genes in their daily functioning. The difference between a heart cell and a liver cell, for example, is determined by which genes are expressed–and the correct expression of genes can mean the difference between health and disease.
