A new deal on data – articulating the contract between science and people

Now is the time for scientists to strike a deal everyone that benefits society as well as research, argue Anna Middleton, Vivienne Parry and Julian Borra

25 Genomes Project update

25 Genomes update. Yes, it’s been a while …

More than half of the species’ genomes have now been sequenced and assembled. But starfish, flatworms and truffles are a different matter, Dan Mead discovers

A trusty guide for exploring the complexity of cells

Single cell RNA sequencing data can be used to identify cell types. Martin Hemberg and Vladimir Kiselev explain how their new scmap method can help the Human Cell Atlas initiative by analysing this data.
