Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs) have the potential to generate any human cell type, and one widely recognized goal is to make pancreatic β cells. To this end, comparisons between differentiated cell types produced in vitro and their in vivo counterparts are essential to validate hPSC-derived cells. Genome-wide transcriptional analysis of sorted… (More)
Understanding how genes within cells, and cells within circuits, function together to produce the extraordinary repertoire of animal behaviors is arguably one of the most challenging undertakings in neuroscience. Two papers in this issue move toward this goal via 3D imaging of active neurons across the entire mouse brain.
