Provides a unified view of the human transcriptome. WikiCell is an open and public platform dedicated to the annotation of the human transcriptome. Researchers can contribute transcriptome data, including ESTs and annotations. The wiki format allows authors to create and edit any number of interlinked webpages. Based on the anatomy of the human body, the logical structure traces out an image of refined classification from nine major systems to cell level, and includes both physiological and pathological transcriptome data. WikiCell can be searched by organ, tissue, and cell type, as well as GenBank accession number.
