# What is Feature Barcoding technology?

I heard the term Feature Barcoding a lot so I find resources to understand it. I have read docs of 10xgenomics and I see that Feature Barcoding technology is a method for adding extra channels of information to cells by running single-cell gene expression in parallel with other assays, this technology also do something with t-SNE and something with matrices.

I can't imagine the whole picture because I don't know what are those adding extra channels of information to cells, single-cell gene expression and parallel with other assays mean. And what is the input and output of this technology? Is there any paper go along with this technology?

• Welcome to the site. Have you looked at the 10X genomics website? Usually they post all the papers and materials. How you done pubmed or google scholar search for papers? – Bioathlete Feb 10 '19 at 3:40
• I did but I only found this paper relates to the term "Feature Barcoding" when some people tweeted about https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/237693v1 , and this paper in Feature Barcoding Glossary https://www.nature.com/articles/nmeth.4380 . But I cannot find the whole match "Feature Barcoding" in that paper which make me unclear how it relates to each other. – Trong-Thang Pham Feb 10 '19 at 14:18

• Thank you so much. Now it's more clear for me. May you suggest any paper come with it? I found some paper but don't know which one is better for understanding: https://www.nature.com/articles/nmeth.4380 or https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101/237693v1 – Trong-Thang Pham Feb 10 '19 at 14:10
