Cell Dynamics Portal

Focus Trajectories

Project Goal

To build a Cell Dynamics Portal for data visualization, exploration, and analysis with emphasis on state transitions, developmental trajectories, genetic differences, inferred dynamics, and interactions.

Results & Resources

The Sander lab implemented a javascript-based framework for general data visualizations, focusing on single-cell RNA-seq data, with an open demo website. They implemented three flagship visualizations integrated into the portal—for example, showing protein structures of differentially expressed genes between separate clusters in a tSNE plot, or highlighting genetic variation linked to RNA profile changes on a transcription factor.
