    Recent technological advances are providing unprecedented opportunities to analyse the complexities of biological systems at the single-cell level. Various crucial biological phenomena are either invisible or only partially characterized when interrogated using standard analyses that average data across a bulk population of cells. However, high-throughput analyses of the genomes, transcriptomes and proteomes of single cells are providing novel and important insights into diverse processes such as development, gene-expression dynamics, tissue heterogeneity and disease pathogenesis.

    With improved methods to explore the transcriptome, in recent years there have been great advances in identifying and understanding non-coding RNAs. Regulatory pathways involving small RNAs, such as microRNAs, are now being elucidated in detail, and functions for long non-coding RNAs are also coming to light. The articles in this series discuss insights into the biology of non-coding RNAs of all sizes in a wide range of organisms.
