Welch et al. and Stuart et al. present novel techniques for the integration of single-cell RNA-seq datasets across multiple platforms, individuals, and species. They both extend these strategies to map cell types between RNA-seq datasets with epigenetic properties and in situ transcript profiling. The ability to transfer information between datasets and spatial methods will enable more comprehensive profiling and comparisons of cell populations in complex biological systems.
