This paper is a starting point for more things to come. It is focused on the method and there is clearly a lot of biological findings to be made from those data. More broadly, the Sanger and the EMBL-EBI have recently set up a joint single cell genomics centre to acquire an develop the required technology. From the EBI side this is headed by Sarah Teichmann (also affiliated with Sanger) and John Marioni. Unfortunately, for my interests in post-translational regulation, single-cell proteomics is still lagging way behind. The Cytof comes closest but still requires antibodies for detection.
