Sponsored by Andor, on 9 February 2022

Featured Lab: The Chen Lab, Genome Institute of Singapore  As cells develop and function in tissues, many changes occur not just at the level of RNA transcription, but also at the larger level of spatial organisation of cellular gene expression within the tissue. Studying these changes to RNA profiles at the single-cell level can thus provide

On a sunny, summer’s day in July 2018, The Company of Biologists was hosting its annual lunch before a meeting with the Board of Directors and Editors-in-Chief. It’s a very friendly affair, and a great opportunity for the in-house staff to mingle with the Board and Editors – people they don’t see on a day-to-day
