Studying Stem Cell and Developmental Biology with Single Cell Technologies

Thematic Series

Leading Editor: Prof. Guoji Guo and Prof. Naihe Jing


Individual cells are fundamental units of life. The genome sequence of an organism is shared but is utilized differently in different cell types to produce the transcriptomes of individual cells with diverse functions. Recently, breakthroughs in single-cell technologies have greatly enhanced our ability to study molecular events in stem cell and developmental biology.


To highlight both technical advances of single cell genomics and biological insights into stem cell self-renewal and differentiation, Cell Regeneration is currently inviting submissions to its upcoming special issue on Studying Stem Cell and Developmental Biology with Single Cell Technologies.


The special issue will be led by Prof. Guoji Guo (Zhejiang University) and Prof. Naihe Jing (CAS Center for Excellence in Molecular Cell Science). They will guide the scope of the issue and provide advice on commissioned content, as well as be involved in the editorial decision making on all papers submitted. Research of interest, alongside commissioned review and comment articles from experts in the field will be converged on this special issue.


We will especially welcome Research, Method and Resource, Opinion and Review submissions, including (but not limited to) the following areas:

*  Studying Stem Cell and Developmental Biology at single cell level

*  Single cell sequencing technologies

*  Spatial analysis of single cells

*  Computational analysis of single cell data

 Please submit directly to Cell Regeneration stating in your cover letter that you are targeting the ‘Studying Stem Cell and Developmental Biology with Single Cell Technologies' collection.

The submission deadline is December 31st, 2020.
