The main focus of the Cai group is single cell systems biology.  They use super-resolution and live cell microscopy to study gene regulatory networks in cells and organisms.

We have recently demonstrated a technique that can multiplex detection of 32 mRNAs in single cells using super-resolution barcoding.  We are working on expanding the throughput of the technique to over 100 genes and applying it to multi-cellular organisms to study developmental processes.
