25th of January: Modelling and measuring the landscapes of early embryonic development

Posted by on January 13th, 2021

Cellular differentiation describes the process by which embryonic cells become different from one another, acquiring distinct identities and specialised functions. These cells are responding to signals that modify the dynamics of the interacting key genes controlling the cell’s state. The arrival of more and better single cell data opens up new opportunities for better understanding[…]
