The application of single-cell mRNA sequencing technologies to plant embryos promises to reveal the gene expression dynamics underlying cell-type differentiation. A new paper in Development reports the generation of high-quality transcriptomes from single embryonic nuclei without contamination from maternal tissues. To find out more about the story, we caught up with first author Ping Kao and his supervisor Michael Nodine, who recently moved from the Gregor Mendel Institute in Vienna to become Assistant Professor in the Laboratory of Molecular Biology at Wageningen University in the Netherlands.
