As human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) exit pluripotency, they are thought to switch from a glycolytic mode of energy generation to one more dependent on oxidative phosphorylation. Here we show that, although metabolic switching occurs during early mesoderm and endoderm

Sample multiplexing facilitates single-cell sequencing by reducing costs, revealing subtle difference between similar samples, and identifying artifacts such as cell doublets. However, universal and cost-effective strategies are rather limited. Here, we reported a concanavalin A-based sample barcoding strategy (CASB), which
