Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Q: What is the difference of SHOGoiN with other databases?
A: Our features are as follows.
1. The misidentification of cell types can be prevented by using the 5 factor ID code.
2. The ID code integrates five pieces of information: a) cell lineage map, b) transcriptome/methylome analysis information, c) cell conversion information, d) cell marker information and e) cell/tissue image information.
3. It is possible to integrate information quickly from other databases (Cellfinder, LifeMap Discovery™ and so on) into SHOGoiN by using the ID code.
Q: How frequently is SHOGoiN updated?
A: SHOGoiN is usually updated at the beginning of every month. See "What's new" and "Release notes".
Q: How can I download the SHOGoiN dataset?
A: The data can be found in "Data Downloads".
Q: How can I identify the similar cell types used for my research?
A: CELLBLAST was designed for this purpose.
Q: How can I get information on genes that may contribute to cell type differences using SHOGoiN?
A: GSEABoT was designed for this purpose.
Q: What does the term "SHOGoiN Cell ID" mean?
A: SHOGoiN Cell ID consists of Anatomy ID (22 digits) and Cell Type ID (3 digits).
