Human Cell Atlas citations


Characterizing the replicability of cell types defined by single cell RNA sequencing data using MetaNeighbor

Nat Commun
PMCID: 5830442
PMID: 29491377
DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03282-0

[…] age, sex, and strain. More comprehensive reporting would allow for deeper evaluation of technical and biological factors that influence single-cell expression results. As the project of assembling a human cell atlas gets underway, we hope that participants continue to learn lessons from MAQC and other large consortia projects, making results quickly and readily available to the public, and recogn […]


Cell type discovery and representation in the era of high content single cell phenotyping

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5763450
PMID: 29322913
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1977-1

[…] state of a memory T cell rather than a new cell type. Fig. 4 Establish a new working group – We propose the establishment of a new working group composed of CL developers and representatives of the Human Cell Atlas group and other stakeholder communities to develop strategies for naming, defining, and positioning new cell types identified through high throughput experiments in the CL. Molecular […]


Cells in experimental life sciences challenges and solution to the rapid evolution of knowledge

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 5763506
PMID: 29322916
DOI: 10.1186/s12859-017-1976-2

[…] kshop is the first attempt of its kind to establish the dialogue to move forward in finding the optimal solutions to these challenges. The workshop has laid out the communication channels between the Human Cell Atlas (HCA) ontologists with the Cell Ontology developers that connect back to the experimental biologists generating and analyzing single-cell data. The discussion has resulted in an agree […]
