FISSEQ is an abbreviation for "Fluorescent in situ sequencing", a method of sequencing DNA by the use of polonies and cycles of fluorescent deoxyribonucleotide triphosphate (dNTP) incorporation.[1] Although FISSEQ does not generate as many reads as RNA-Seq, FISSEQ mainly detects genes that characterize cell type and function. This means that FISSEQ might be a means to identify cell types in situ based on gene expression profiles.[2]
