Travelling through tissues one cell at a time: the Human Cell Atlas and barrier tissues
Genomics has undergone a resolution revolution, such that the nucleic acid content of individual cells are now sequenced routinely in high-throughput mode. Thus we can define the cellular composition of tissues in an unbiased and comprehensive way using single-cell transcriptomics, revealing the molecular fingerprint of cell states and their predicted signaling circuits in tissues across development and disease. Dr. Teichmann will illustrate this with the maternal-fetal interface in the first-trimester placenta and decidua.
