Labeling and perturbation of specific cell types in multicellular systems has transformed our ability to understand them. The rapid pace of cell type identification by new single-cell analysis methods has not been met with efficient access to these newly discovered types. To enable access to specific neural populations in the mouse cortex, we have collected single cell chromatin accessibility data from select cell types. We clustered the single cell data and mapped them to single cell transcriptomics to identify highly specific enhancers for cell subclasses. These enhancers, when cloned into AAVs and delivered to the brain by retro orbital injections, transgene expression in specific cell subclasses throughout the mouse brain. This approach will enable functional investigation of cell types in the mouse cortex and beyond.
