Heterogeneity in Human Immune Cells

Heterogeneity in Human Immune Cells is a website providing interactive figures (iFigs) for a recent study of protein expression heterogeneity in human immune cells conducted by Dr. John Tsang's group (Systems Genomics and Bioinformatics Unit) at the Laboratory of Systems Biology, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Trans-NIH Center for Human Immunology.

Main Areas of Focus

To allow researchers to:

  • View a depiction of the study design
  • Explore the heterogeneity parameters (HPs) within individual subjects
  • View examples of temporally stable HPs
  • Inspect HPs associated with age
  • Inspect HPs associated with single nucleotide polymorphisms previously found by genome-wide association studies (GWAS) to be associated with diseases/human traits
