Cell atlas project shares profiles of mice and men

Genetic profiles of human and mouse cells produced by scientists from the Wellcome Sanger Institute and the Medical Research Council Cancer Unit are being made openly accessible for use by other researchers.

The early release of material from the Human Cell Atlas Initiative to a preview site means the information can be used for basic research, to study disease and to enable computational biologists to test analysis tools, the Sanger Institute said in an announcement on 13 April.

The first tranche of data includes the first single-cell transcriptomic data-set from the human spleen and a data set of normal and immune cells from an often-used mouse tumour model.
