Single-cell atlases of human fetal gene expression and fetal chromatin accessibility are published by a University of Washington School of Medicine-led team in Science this week. In the first study, the researchers applied three-level single-cell combinatorial indexing for gene expression to 121 human fetal samples ranging from an estimated 79 days to 129 days post-conception and representing 15 organs, ultimately profiling around 4 million individual cells.
