What is this database?

PanglaoDB is a database for the scientific community interested in exploration of single cell RNA sequencing experiments from mouse and human. We collect and integrate data from multiple studies and present them through a unified framework. A manuscript is currently in preparation where the database and its technical details will be described.

What is single cell RNA sequencing?

Adapted from the Wikipedia article on the topic: Single cell RNA sequencing examines the transcriptomes from individual cells with optimized next generation sequencing technologies, providing a higher resolution of gene expression and a better understanding of the function of an individual cell in the context of its microenvironment.
