The study of human tissues requires a systems biology approach. Their development starts in utero and during adulthood, they change their organization and cell composition. Our team has integrated comprehensive maps of human developing and adult tissues generated by us and others using a combination of single-cell and spatial transcriptomics, chromatin accessibility assays and fluorescent microscopy. We utilise these maps to guide the development and interpretability of in vitro models. To do so, we develop and apply bioinformatic tools that allow us to quantitatively compare both systems and predict changes.

IMPORTANT: For attendees outside the PCB community you must register at least 24h before the seminar
