CellexalVR is a virtual reality platform for the visualisation and analysis of single-cell gene expression data.

Analysing data in virtual reality provides a fully immersive environment where the user can visualise and interact with the data without restriction, with a focus on data visibility and point selection.

CellexalVR is developed for the HTC Vive hardware and works with any single-cell method (UMI, SmartSeq, etc) where the cells are projected to 3 space.
