Sarah Teichmann introduces the ground-breaking Human Cell Atlas project, which aims to create a complete map of all 37 trillion cells in the human body. Scientists across the world are analysing millions of cells in unprecedented detail using innovative single-cell genomics techniques.

The data will provide vital information about the genes that are expressed in the cell and how cells change between health and disease. Sarah describes the latest progress and illustrates the enormous benefits that the atlas will provide for researchers and the public alike.
