Single-cell atlas of human teeth exposes root of stem cell behavior
The first comprehensive single-cell atlas of the human tooth reveals how different dental tissues control the activity of stem cells. Published recently in iScience, the study used advanced single-cell sequencing technology to show that changes in the cellular environment may explain differences in the behavior of stem cells.

Scientists map gene expression without microscopes
A new framework called Tomographer, which uses sequencing data from tissues cut into thin strips in a way that allows them to be reconstructed, has been developed to spatially resolve gene expression data without the need for a microscope. The work was published in Nature Biotechnology on April 19. Read More
New algorithm helps integrate single-cell data from around the globe
A new algorithm enables researchers from around the globe to integrate multiple single-cell datasets from a variety of omics platforms in a quick and efficient process that can be done on standard computers. The technology, described in an April 19 Nature Biotechnology article, will help speed collaborative cell cataloging projects, such as the Human Body Map and Human Cell Atlas. Read More
