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.

Usage examples

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.
