Cells are the most fundamental unit of human body. However, we know little about individual cells, because most studies have been done with bulk cells samples for the limitation of technologies, which masks different natures between individual cells.

We develop technologies for single cell genomics and transcriptomics aiming at providing a high resolution to elucidate the regulatory mechanisms of gene expression that govern the diversity of cells in the body and the interactions of the cells. New insights from the single cell analysis promise richer understanding of human health and diseases and leading the development of new therapies.
