Rapid developments in bioimaging and sequencing technologies have revolutionized biological science. Since Peking University’s (PKU) Biomedical Pioneering Innovation Centre (BIOPIC) was founded in 2010, an interdisciplinary group of researchers has been dedicated to developing these cutting-edge techniques, and harnessing them to address fundamental biological issues and compelling medical problems. Their results have improved understanding of biological systems, as well as infectious and non-communicable diseases. On the 10th anniversary of BIOPIC, its founding director, Xiaoliang Sunney Xie, a pioneer in single molecule biology, reflects on its growth, and shares his vision for the development of single-cell technologies.
