Studying all the cells in the human body is an enormous endeavor—current estimates suggest that an average human being is made of at least 37.2 trillion cells. To take on this bold task, in our first draft atlas we are focusing on tissues that will not only reveal interesting biology, but also inform us about efficient and effective sampling and analysis strategies for a full-scale cell atlas effort. Each of these tissues, organs, organ systems or focus areas is the subject of an HCA Biological Network. Contact information for the coordinators of each network is included in the network descriptions below.
The goals of this seminar series are:
The HCA Biological Network Seminar Series is made possible through the generous support of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.
