Efficient storage and manipulation of a binary sequence

I'm looking for pointers or hints on the processing of digital communications
data within MATLAB. I would like to efficiently store and process a binary
sequence of data. That is, I don't want to waist 4 bytes storing a "1" or "0".
So, if I am processing the sequence "01000111", it would occupy less than 32 or
16 bytes (typical 8-element row or column vector), and I could efficiently
perform bit-based operations with a second vector (say, bit-based exclusive-OR,

Thanks. I hope it's just a command suite I've missed.
