ABSTRACT: Single-cell sequencing (SCS) is a promising new technique used to assess the genomics, transcriptomics, epigenetics, and other multi-omics at the single-cell level. In addition to elucidating the immune microenvironment and revealing the pathomechanisms of disease and drug resistance, SCS can profile the actual state of an individual cell and identify a novel cell type and differentiation trajectories, which cannot be achieved by bulk tissue sequencing technique. SCS technique serves as powerful tools to explore more meaningful biomarkers of diagnosis, prognosis, and new therapeutic targets in clinical practice. The SCS technique has been widely applied in the field of dermatology. In this review, we summarize the advances of SCS in dermatology.
