Before the advent of single-cell transcriptional analysis or RNAseq, the transcriptional analysis was done on a population level. While bulk sequencing brought the developmental biology community quite a bit of vital information that has certainly advanced the field, there are some major drawbacks of population studies that are resolved via scRNAseq. Firstly, population studies cannot account for heterogeneity within cell populations. Secondly, bulk studies cannot access rare cell populations within a sample, or understand population substructure. They also require much more starting...
