Scientists Unveil New 'Atlas' for Navigating Human Genome

Humans are complex multicellular organisms composed of at least 400 distinct cell types. This beautiful diversity of cell types allow us to see, think, hear, move — yet all of this is encoded in the same genome. The difference between cell types comes down to which parts of the genome they use — for instance, brain cells use different genes than liver cells, and therefore work very differently.
