What is SHOGoiN

SHOGoiN Cell Database is a repository for accumulating and integrating diverse human cell information to support a wide range of cell research at the single-cell resolution. It is a significant extension of the world-first human cell database, CELLPEDIA (Hatano et al., Database 2011). compass The database consists of several modules that store cell lineage maps, transcriptome, methylome, cell conversions, cell type markers, cell images with morphology data, and orthologous cells curated from public as well as contracted resources, based on sophisticated cell taxonomy.
