Single nucleus RNA-Seq (sNuc-Seq) profiles RNA from tissues that are preserved or cannot be dissociated, but does not provide the throughput required to analyse many cells from complex tissues. Here, we develop DroNc-Seq , massively parallel sNuc-Seq with droplet technology. We profile 29,543 nuclei from mouse and human archived brain samples to demonstrate sensitive, efficient and unbiased classification of cell types, paving the way for charting systematic cell atlases.
