Cell types and ontologies of the Human Cell Atlas

Massive single-cell profiling efforts have accelerated our discovery of the cellular composition of the human body, while at the same time raising the need to formalise this new knowledge. Here, we review current cell ontology efforts to harmonise and integrate different sources of annotations of cell types and states. We illustrate with examples how a unified ontology can consolidate and advance our understanding of cell types across scientific communities and biological domains.
