Using the latest genome sequencing techniques, Dr Sam Behjati is revealing the journey that cells take on their way to becoming cancerous, and how we might stop them.
Dr Kerstin Meyer, Principal Staff Scientist at the Sanger Institute, explains what it’s like to work on a such a huge, collaborative endeavour
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.
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.
