Human Cell Atlas project aims to map the human body's 35 trillion cells

Aiming to decipher the types and properties of every cell, the project will attempt to work out exactly what we are made from and how illness develops Labs around the world will create the most comprehensive map of the 35 trillion cells that make up the human body under plans put forward by researchers on Friday. The international effort aims to decipher the types and properties of every cell a person contains, whether healthy or diseased, in a bid to speed up discoveries in medical science.
