Dr. Yang Liu is a third year postdoc working at Dr. Rong Fan’s lab at Yale University. He is interested in building novel tools for spatial omics sequencing. He developed a high spatial resolution multi-omics sequencing technique, named DBiT-seq, which can achieve near single cell spatial resolution (10 µm) sequencing of RNA and protein on the same tissue section. His ongoing work includes developing DBiT-seq V2.0, building a 3D human healthy heart Atlas and studying development of human tumor tissues. During PhD training, he worked primarily as an analytical chemist and toxicologist, focusing on the developments of a variety of highly sensitive analytical methods for the quantification of post-translational modifications. He is also highly interested in applying cutting-edge bioinformatic tools to understand spatial omics data.

Image of the Week
This week we present a Cell DIVE image of healthy human heart cells by Liz McDonough in Dr. Fiona Ginty's lab at GE Research in collaboration with Dr. Shin Lin at University of Washington - Cardiology. We are thrilled to share this piece of our heart with you.
The meeting will take place on *Wednesday, Thursday and Friday May 19-21,

We have an agendapacked full of presentations, breakout sessions, and plenty of opportunities to chat with fellow Consortium members! With many opportunities for
discussion, we are excited to hear from a diverse range of voices from across the Consortium, including from our HuBMAP junior investigators.

Registration is now openfor the virtual 2021 HCA General Meeting taking place June 28-30 from 9AM - 1PM EST.
This event will bring the HCA community together virtually with a great event platform, and share updates and insights on new HCA research and initiatives. We will also highlight the work of the 18 HCA Biological Networksand explore how to build draft cell atlas roadmaps, building on the progress from the HCA Biological Network Seminar Series.
Developers in need of HIVE infrastructure may request access through the PSC web form, found here.
Instructions for using HIVE infrastructure can now be found in the "Quick Links" section of the Collaboration Portal. A direct link to this documentation can be foundhere. Please report any issues or direct any questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
