The connections between the external and internal environments are explored in a new experimental short film ‘Call of the Silent Cell’. The film created was by artists working with scientists in the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) – a global project to map the 37 trillion cells in our bodies, and forms part of a new, online exhibition.
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.
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.
