Congratulations to Jiaxi Zhou and colleagues on the publication of their paper on human embryonic megakaryopoiesis. The authors generated the first comprehensive single-cell MK RNA sequencing dataset using primary human tissues, which led to the identification of distinct sub-populations of MK early in development. These data highlighted the emergence of potential functional specialisations in MK during embryogenesis, and revealed the distinct developmental trajectories of different MK subgroups. It was a real pleasure working together on this manuscript, and we wish the group every success in 2021!
