Researchers at Seattle’s Allen Institute for Cell Science and their colleagues have now developed a way to quantitatively map how these cellular components are arranged in space. Their approach, published in Nature, has the potential to be adapted broadly by scientists to investigate how cells operate. The work of Julie Theriot, UW Biology Professor, and Maggie Fuqua, UW Biology graduate student, contributed to this publication.
The researchers analyzed more than 200,000 human stem cells at high resolution in three dimensions. They assessed the position of multiple internal structures, each visualized by a fluorescent label.
