NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Two new studies that used single-cell RNA sequencing to profile tracheal or bronchial tissue from mice or humans have provided a clearer understanding of the relationships between cells in the airway and lungs, while identifying a new cell type that appears to be relevant to cystic fibrosis biology.

"The atlas that we've created is already starting to drastically reshape our understanding of airway and lung biology," Aviv Regev, director of the Broad Institute's Klarman Cell Observatory and co-chair of the Human Cell Atlas consortium, said in a statement.
