nference® Launches First-In-Class Single Cell RNA-Sequencing Resource to Arm Researchers Fighting COVID-19 Pandemic – The Baytown Sun

CAMBRIDGE, Mass.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mar 30, 2020–

n f erence today announced the launch of a first-in-class software resource that synthesizes disparate Single Cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) data sets to combat the COVID-19 public health crisis. The resource is equipped with the n f erX augmented intelligence technology that teaches machines to comprehend over 100 million unstructured biomedical documents and triangulate these emergent insights from scientific literature with deep biological signals at single cell resolution.

By enabling researchers to study intricate molecular patterns and investigate the heterogeneity of healthy and pathologic tissues alike, the resource will help scientists to rapidly generate and pressure-test new hypotheses. The resource is envisioned to help researchers respond to the coronavirus outbreak, including decoding molecular signatures of viral infection, human-to-human transmission, and increased mortality risk from underlying health conditions or medication regimen. The n f erence Single Cell resource is free to
