Understanding how healthy human cells behave is vital to understanding what goes wrong in disease. Researchers at the Allen Institute for Cell Science are illuminating structures in human iPS cells through genome editing, 3D imaging them in high resolution, and developing visualization software and other tools to learn more. Cell lines, images, and tools developed by our scientists are openly available to support the cell biology community.
