Graphical Abstract:


The complex immune system is involved in multiple pathological processes. Single-cell RNA sequencing (scRNA-seq) is able to analyze complex cell mixtures correct to a single cell and single molecule, thus is qualified to analyze immune reactions in several diseases. In recent years, scRNA-seq has been applied in many researching fields and has presented many innovative results. In this review, we intend to provide an overview of single-cell RNA sequencing applications in immunology and a prospect of future directions.

Keywords: Single-cell RNA sequencing, immunology, cancer, autoimmune disease, transplantation, tumors.
