Ziegenhain et al. generated data from mouse ESCs to systematically evaluate six prominent scRNA-seq methods. They used power simulations to compare cost efficiencies, allowing for informed choice among existing protocols and  providing a framework for future comparisons.

The study

  • represents the most comprehensive comparison of scRNA-seq protocols,
  • provides power simulations quantifying the effect of sensitivity and precision on cost efficiency,
  • offers an informed choice among six prominent scRNA-seq methods,
  • provides a framework for benchmarking future protocol improvements.
