About Us

We are a group of scientists from 🏫 ZJU-UoE Institute working on decoding puzzles in bio-medical sciences. Topics we are interested in include epigenetic regulation of transposable elements in stem cells and cancer, genomics technology and bioinformatic algorithm development.
By combining both "wet lab" (experimental 🔬) and "dry lab" (computational 💻) approaches, we hope to provide our unique expertises in advancing our understandings for bio-medical sciences.

Developer's Notes


All datasets are uniformly processed by our pipeling, using various software packages including Cellranger, Scanpy, etc. Processed data are stored in H5DF files or in PostgresSQL database on the cloud server.


The major function of the web interface of huARdb is the interactive analysis and visualization for different single-cell immune profiling datasets. We adopted D3.js version 6 to build the interactive modules in the web interface.

Some of the codes are referenced from bl.ocks.org and Observable, including the volcano plot and the heatmap. We hereby granted the authors for sharing their works.

About ZJE

The Zhejiang University-University of Edinburgh Institute (ZJE) is a collaboration in the field of Biomedical Sciences between Zhejiang University of China and The University of Edinburgh, United Kingdom. Biomedical Sciences covers the functioning of the human body at molecular, cellular, organ and systems levels in health and disease. Biomedical scientists use knowledge gained by research across a range of related disciplines, including physiology, anatomy, pharmacology, immunology and neuroscience, and apply this knowledge to increase understanding of normal bodily functions and in the analysis of disease mechanisms. The research carried out by biomedical scientists is fundamental for new developments and innovations in disease diagnosis, treatment and prevention.
