Single Cell Resource for Mouse

August 2, 2019


Tabula Muris is a compendium of single cell transcriptome data from the model organism Mus musculus, containing nearly 100,000 cells from 20 organs and tissues. The data allow for direct and controlled comparison of gene expression in cell types shared between tissues, such as immune cells from distinct anatomical locations. They also allow for a comparison of two distinct technical approaches: “}}

NAR Breakthrough Article: denovo-db: a compendium of human de novo variants

April 3, 2017

.@denovodb: a compendium of [initially ~33K] human de novo variants w. phenotype, freely downloadable as a TSV table

As of July 2016, denovo-db contained 40 different studies and 32,991 de novo variants from 23,098 trios. Database features include basic variant information (chromosome location, change, type); detailed annotation at the transcript and protein levels; severity scores; frequency; validation status; and, most importantly, the phenotype of the individual with the variant.

Core services: Reward bioinformaticians

May 9, 2015

QT:{{"The research system does not recognize bioinformaticians for doing what the scientific community needs most. “People realize the importance, but currently there are no real solutions,” says Xiaole Liu, a bioinformatician at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, Massachusetts, and at Tongji University in Shanghai, China. This is why it can take more than six months to fill positions at a core, why many of biology’s brightest are leaving science for technology companies, and why conventional biologists wait nine months to get help to dissect their data.
