The two atlases map gene expression and availability as cells differentiate into different cell types and tissues.
Changes observed in the nuclei of cells emerging in mouse embryos will chart genomics of mammalian development.
Radiator-like fluid systems adjust the genetic wiring inside human liver cells in preliminary work toward artificial organ-tissue engineering
The dynamics of gene expression across the genome can be characterized as a cell develops, and as it responds to challenges.
The sci-Plex technique holds promise for cell biology research in cancer, infectious diseases, autoimmune disorders, prenatal medicine and many other medical and basic science areas.
Inserted in the human genome thousands of years ago, the genes can produce viral proteins without activating the whole virus.
