BCN, 14 May 2020.- Single-cell genomics provides the ability to understand all the cellular and genetic variability of any biological system at unprecedented resolution. The "Human Cell Atlas", which can be conceived as the periodic...
BCN, 7 April 2020.- There will be two mass testing sites – one coordinated by the CRG at its labs at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park and another at the Parc Cientific de Barcelona, jointly coordinated by IRB Barcelona, IBEC and the CNAG-CRG, part of the CRG.   The project, codenamed Programa...
BCN, 6 April 2020.- All cells share the same DNA, yet there are many cell types. They vary enormously within the body, and express different sets of genes. To describe all of a cell’s functions and to understand the biological networks that direct their activities, scientists founded the...
