A Database of

Cell Type Markers

CellKb is a knowledgebase of harmonized cell type
marker gene sets manually collected from
single-cell experiments. Data is extensively curated and annotated with cell and tissue ontologies. We use machine learning to calculate consensus marker genes for cell types.
