Editorial Board member Scott Tanner has just published an exciting paper in Science, showing a brilliant proof of principle for the novel technology of mass cytometry and providing a uniquely detailed view of cell differentiation in the human hematopoietic system.
This tackles a problem central to biomedical science: identifying the lineages and phenotypes of specialised cells and tracking their molecular differentiation during differentiation.
