Researchers at Cincinnati Children’s have added an important batch of advanced single-cell reference data to the growing, multicenter LungMAP project.
The LungMAP project, funded by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute of the National Institutes of Health, seeks to “better understand human lung development by building an open-access reference resource of a comprehensive, dynamic, 3-D molecular atlas of the late-stage developing human lung with data and reagents available to the research community,” according to its website.
Details about the new data were published online July 29, 2023, in Nature Communications.
“Using independent datasets, we demonstrated the utility of CellRefs for automated cell type annotations of normal lung and for potential identification of disease-related cells based on their deviation from normal pulmonary cells,” the authors state. “Our CellRefs, along with the developed analytic and web-based tools, are freely available to the pulmonary research community to facilitate hypothesis generation, research discovery, and identification of cell type alterations in disease conditions.”
