Human Cell Atlas (HCA) is an international consortium aiming to create comprehensive reference maps of all human cells – the fundamental units of life – as a basis for both understanding human health and diagnosing, monitoring, and treating disease. To embody the global nature of this project, the HCA aims for a greater representation of human diversity – defined by gender, genetics, geography, environment and age. To enable a greater representation, HCA Asia Meeting 2019 in Tokyo aims to bring together leading scientists in the field of single cell genomics to discuss and identify scientific and logistical issues in the context of the high human diversity in Asia, and to establish a coordinated framework to represent Asia in the global HCA.
