More and more near the Atlas of the human cells. Here are the other 500 thousand
the ROME - The biochemical portrait of 500,000 cells of the major organs adds a new element to the project of the Atlas of the human cells. The result, published in Nature, is owed to the researchers-coordinated by Guoji Guo , of the chinese Zhejiang University. There are approximately 30 million cells that make up the organs and tissues of the human body and the goal of revealing the secrets of the international project Human Cell Atlas , which involves hundreds of researchers around the world and the scope of which is comparable to that of the Human Genome Project in 2000 has obtained the map of the Dna of man. The objective is to understand the cell as no one before now has ever seen. And use for therapeutic purposes, these new information.

The cells of the human body contain the same genetic information, but differ in the genes they express and which are the ones that define the functions. The atlas of individual cells and of the genes that express could help in understanding the functions of these cells and the factors that influence their activity. This may allow you to observe how they change the cells when the body ages, to get new tools aimed to the understanding of many diseases, such as cancer and Alzheimer's.
