Abstract

Technological advances have led to the emergence of lineage tracers, but signal recorders for mammalian systems have remained elusive. Kempton et al. have developed a Cas12a base-editing signal recorder capable of capturing diverse signals and operating in various experimental designs. The recorder enables new opportunities to chronicle cellular history.
