Understanding what we are made of

25 years of pushing the scientific boundaries

From one human genome to hundreds of thousands, to every single cell in the body, to the genome of every species on the planet – DNA sequencing is accelerating. On our 25th anniversary we look at the evolution, application and potential of this powerful science.

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.

New computational method reveals where genes are expressed

06.04.18 Valentine Svensson explains how the new computational method SpacialDE interprets single-cell data to identify which genes are switched on in different locations, allowing researchers to zoom into the structures of tissues.
