Based on benchmarking various methods and analyzing multiple real scRNA-seq datasets, a computational platform/workflow and a set of tips for best practices are developed for analyzing causal interactions or relationships in single cells.
LeishBASEedit enables gene editing in Leishmania without requiring DNA double-strand breaks, homologous recombination, or donor DNA, thereby facilitating loss-of-function screens via delivery of plasmid libraries and regardless of limitations due to gene copy number variations and/or lack of RNAi components.

pYtags are novel biosensors that can be used to measure the activity of a receptor tyrosine kinase of interest in live cells with high spatiotemporal resolution and are applied to reveal rapid activity dynamics of EGFR/ErbB2 signaling.
Rapid and efficient CRISPR/Cas9-mediated knock-in of fluorescent reporters at various genomic loci enables cell- and tissue-specific expression and establishes the short-lived African killifish as a vertebrate system for precise genetic engineering at scale.
Intracellular NASPM, unlike the widely used spermine, fully blocks outward currents through calcium-permeable AMPA-type glutamate receptors, enabling an improved functional readout for this physiologically important receptor subtype in neurons.
