Despite being a relatively recent technological development, single-cell transcriptional analysis through high-throughput sequencing has already been used in hundreds of fruitful studies to make exciting new biological discoveries that would otherwise be challenging or even impossible. Consequently, this has fueled a virtuous cycle of even greater interest in the field and compelled development of further improved technical methodologies and approaches. Thanks to the combined efforts of the research community, including the fields of biochemistry and molecular biology, technology and instrumentation, data science, computational biology, and bioinformatics, the single-cell RNA-sequencing field is advancing at a pace that is both astounding and unprecedented.

RNA sequencing (RNA-seq) is a genomic approach for the detection and quantitative analysis of messenger RNA molecules in a biological sample and is useful for studying cellular responses. RNA-seq has fueled much discovery and innovation in medicine over recent years. For practical reasons, the technique is usually conducted on samples comprising thousands to millions of cells.

Single-cell whole-transcriptome analysis is a powerful tool for quantifying gene expression heterogeneity in populations of cells. Many techniques have, thus, been recently developed to perform transcriptome sequencing (RNA-Seq) on individual cells. To probe subtle biological variation between samples with limiting amounts of RNA, more precise and sensitive methods are still required.

The recent developments in high-throughput single-cell RNA sequencing technology (scRNA-seq) have enabled the generation of vast amounts of transcriptomic data at cellular resolution. With these advances come new modes of data analysis, building on high-dimensional data mining techniques. Here, we consider biological questions for which scRNA-seq data is used, both at a cell and gene level, and describe tools available for these types of analyses.

Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has emerged as a revolutionary tool that allows us to address scientific questions that eluded examination just a few years ago. With the advantages of scRNA-seq come computational challenges that are just beginning to be addressed. In this article, we highlight the computational methods available for the design and analysis of scRNA-seq experiments, their advantages and disadvantages in various settings, the open questions for which novel methods are needed, and expected future developments in this exciting area.
