Accelerating COVID-19 Research with New Single-Cell Technologies

Chan Zuckerberg CELL by GENE Discover (CZ CELLxGENE Discover) gives researchers the power to visualize single-cell datasets and unearth interesting biology in an accessible way. Here, lung tissue data from Tabula Sapiens, a reference set of cells collected from many different tissues, is colored by cell type and filtered to isolate immune cells for further analysis.

Visualizing the cells most vulnerable to COVID-19

By analyzing gene expression patterns using CZ CELLxGENE, researchers have identified cells in the nose, lung (pictured), and saliva that are vulnerable to SARS-CoV-2 infection. Photo provided by VIB-UGent.
