Scientists Have Made a Human Cell Breakthrough That Could Revolutionize Healthcare

In a new study, scientists have uncovered the rich variation in cell shapes, even among genetically identical cells. Using computational analyses, they developed what they call a "shape space" that describes external shape. The new data type will allow researchers to uncover the foundational principles of shape and internal organization. Understanding how cells organize their parts under healthy conditions—and the range of variability within "normal"—is key to understanding what goes wrong in disease.
