Analytical BioSciences OmniBrowser

Analytical BioSciences has launched OmniBrowser, a curated web portal for single-cell RNA-seq data visualization and analysis for drug discovery and development. OmniBrowser was designed specifically to support biologists with limited programming experience, and its underlying curated database features more than 1,490 datasets, 680 studies, 18,000 clusters, and 21 million cells, and is constantly updated, the company said. The platform provides web-based tools for dataset selection; dimensional reduction; differential gene expression; correlation analysis; marker gene information; Gene Ontology analysis; supervised annotation; and metadata analysis. OmniBrowser also provides multiple large-scale data-processing functions including gene search and cell ontology, the company said.
