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 cell selection.

CellexalVR is developed using the HTC Vive hardware (other SteamVR hardware is also compatible).
