Reddit AMA: The Human Cell Atlas

The National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and the Human Cell Atlas Organizing Committee will host a Reddit "Ask Me Anything" (AMA) event titled "The Human Cell Atlas". Cells are the most fundamental unit of life, yet we know surprisingly little about them. A complete understanding of human cells could give us a unique "ID card" for each cell type, a three-dimensional map of how cell types work together to form tissues, and provide insight into how changes in the map underlie health and disease.  The Human Cell Atlas, a project spearheaded by Dr. Aviv Regev, seeks to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells.

The AMA can be accessed at this Reddit forum or at the NHGRI website.
