Single-molecule Detection in situ

The human body contains a variety of different cell types that share a common genome, but differ in how they use the information encoded therein. Variation in molecular content exists even at the level of individual cells, and to provide deeper insight into complex cellular processes methods that permit analysis of each cell on its own are needed. This thesis presents molecular methods for localized detection of individual nucleic acid molecules. The developed methods are based on padlock probes and target-primed rolling circle amplification…
