The Human Cell Atlas is an international collaborative effort to map all the cells in the human body and their relationships to each other. The aims of the project would be to define all human cell types in terms of distinctive molecular profiles (e.g., gene expression) and connect this information with classical cellular descriptions (e.g., location and morphology). A comprehensive reference map of the molecular state of cells in healthy human tissues would advance the systematic study of physiological states, developmental trajectories, regulatory circuitry and interactions of cells, as well as provide a framework for human disease.
