Data schema/format description and download
Assembly: Human Dec. 2013 (GRCh38/hg38)
Data last updated at UCSC: 2022-04-11 21:59:21


This track displays single-cell data from 12 papers covering 14 organs. Cells are grouped together by organ and cell type. The cell types are based on annotations published alongside the papers. These were curated at UCSC as much as possible to use the same cell type terminologies across papers and organs. In some cases, we merged together small populations of cells annotated as distinct and related types into a single type so as to have enough cells to call gene expression levels accurate. The gene expression levels are normalized so that the total level of expression for all genes in a single cell or cell type adds up to one million.

Display Conventions and Configuration

The cell types are colored by which class they belong to according to the following table.

Please note, the coloring algorithm allows cells that show some mixed characteristics to = show blended colors so there will be some color variation within a class. In addition, cells with less than 100 transcripts will be a lighter shade and less concentrated in color to represent a low number of transcripts.

Color Cell classification
stem cell or progenitor cell


Each organ or tissue was integrated and curated into the Genome Browser indiviually.

All components were normalized to be in parts per million using the matrixNormalize command available from UCSC. Metadata was cleaned up using the tabToTabDir tool. The major clean-ups were unpacking abbreviations, replacing jargon with standard English, choosing shorted terms to shorten long labels, labeling outliers, etc. Before integration we invited the original data producers as well as local biologists and informaticions to view the data.


Many thanks to the data contributing labs for sharing their high quality research. Thanks to the Cell Browser team including Matt Speir and Max Haeussler, for their work in integratinging these datasets into the Cell Browser. In most cases, their efforts were ahead of our own and we could leverage their work making the job much easier. Within the Genome Browser group, Jim Kent did the initial wrangling, and Brittney Wick did substantial data cleanup and coordination with the labs.
