**Abstract.**
Using Kohnert's algorithm, we associate a polynomial to any cell diagram in the positive quadrant, simultaneously generalizing Schubert polynomials and *GL*_{n} Demazure characters. We survey properties of these Kohnert polynomials and their stable limits, which are quasisymmetric functions. As a first application, we introduce and study two new bases of Kohnert polynomials, one of which stabilizes to the skew-Schur functions and is conjecturally Schubert-positive, the other stabilizes to a new basis of quasisymmetric functions that contains the Schur functions.
