Project: CellNavigator - A workbench for cellbiologists
CellNavigator will be a open-source web-based compendium of cell line expression profiles and query tools.
It purpose will be dedicated to the web lab scientist working with cell lines. This innovative tool should help those scientists to pre-select specific cell lines for upcoming experiments
to improve the chances of success. Therefore an intuitive query tool will be implemented allowing the user to analyze individual cell lines for specific genes, biological functions and expression or any combination of them.
CellNavigator will held genetic information on 318 individual cell lines, representing 54613 unique spots corresponding to 19798 unique genes. Additionally and to enlarge the scope of CellNavigator those data will be connected to common functional and genetic databases (e.g. NCBI, EnsEMBL, KEGG, etc.).
