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.
Dataset of the day
Take a closer look at the cellular composition of Lung
, using a dataset which consists of 906 cells. Clustering of this dataset resulted in 5 cell clusters, containing among others, Macrophages
08-02-2019 Running updates. Some features will not work during the day and the server will be slow.
07-02-2019 Service was interrupted for a few hours due to upgrades.
02-01-2019 Our manuscript was submitted a few weeks ago and is now on review.
12-12-2018 Bug in the search fixed. A coding typo rendered the search broken. Thanks to the user that reported it.
19-11-2018 Differential expression analysis now takes input threshold arguments (q-value and log fold change).
16-11-2018 Differential expression analysis is now available. Enter the interactive view for a sample, then click the "Differential expression" link.
