New paper in Nature Medicine

We investigated SARS-CoV-2 potential tropism by surveying expression of viral entry-associated genes in single-cell RNA-sequencing data from multiple tissues from healthy human donors…Read more…..

New paper in Cell

Here, we leverage human and non-human primate (NHP) single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) datasets to uncover the cell subsets that may serve as cellular targets of SARS-CoV-2…Read more……

New preprint @ bioRxiv

Here, we assess the cell type-specific RNA expression of ACE2, TMPRSS2, and CTSL through an integrated analysis of 107 single-cell and single-nucleus RNA-Seq studies, including 22 lung and airways datasets (16 unpublished), and 85 datasets from other diverse organs…Read more…..

Featured Publication

Brigid Hogan and Purushothama Rao Tata illustrate the cellular architecture of the respiratory system and highlight key cell types residing in different regions, including their markers, functions, lineage relationships and pathological relevance, as well as approaches to culturing and studying them in vitro.
