cell type search
using marker genes
Search thousands of manually collected and annotated cell types and author-defined marker gene sets from published literature in seconds.
What is CellKb
CellKb is a knowledgebase of tens of thousands of cell type marker gene sets manually collected from scientific literature, annotated with cell, tissue and disease ontologies, and integrated with protein-protein interaction networks.
What you can do with CellKb
CellKb helps scientists rapidly search through published literature to find matching cell types associated with known marker genes, saving significant time and effort.
Search cell types using marker genes
Use one or more lists of marker genes to find matching cell type signatures and interaction networks published in literature.
Search cell types with keywords
Search cell types by name, tissue, experimental conditions, publication details and disease annotations.
Search cell types by ontology
Navigate by cell, tissue or disease ontology. See experimental details and get cell type marker genes.
Search cell types across species
Use a list of marker genes from one species to search matching cell type signatures in another species.
