Dr. Sanjay Srivatsan develops technologies that use the sequences of molecules like RNA or protein to reveal important biological relationships between molecules and between cells. Srivatsan has created single-cell RNA sequencing techniques that increase the scale of single-cell RNA sequencing experiments and give information about which genes are turned on — and where — within cells and tissues. Using these innovations, he showed how changing a DNA-packaging enzyme can alter cellular metabolism, and built a developmental family tree by inferring relationships between cells using gene-expression information. At Fred Hutch, he will continue to develop novel sequence-based technologies that enable scientists to examine relationships between molecules and trace cellular dynamics across vertebrate development.
