International Human Cell Atlas Initiative

(Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute) The first project of its kind, as ambitious as the Human Genome Project, the Human Cell Atlas aims to chart the types and properties of all human cells, across all tissues and organs, to build a reference map of the healthy human body.The meeting, convened by the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard, Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and Wellcome Trust, brings international experts together to decide on the elements of the iniative's first phase.
