Dr. Sander W. van der Laan, assistant professor at partner UMCU, in collaboration with investigators at the University of Virginia has developed the PlaqView webportal.
PlaqView is a standalone, interactive, and reproducible Shiny/R-based tool designed to explore cardiovascular single-cell genomic datasets.
The purpose of this tool is to make these valuable datasets and data analysis tools broadly accessible to non-bioinformaticians. PlaqView is an open-source tool, freely available and can be adapted to different single-cell datasets.
Check out the webpage here (https://www.plaqview.com) and a very useful movie the investigators have created that acts as a short demo users can learn about the various features and capabilities of the R/shiny based application on YouTube. (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TWV9MLl8LcI)
