The Shalek Lab strives to engineer and create technologies and methods achievable by any lab, anywhere in the world. See our open source experimental protocols, computational packages, and favorite recipes below.

COVID-19 Cell Atlas

Our nasal epithelial COVID-19 dataset, along with COVID-19 datasets from other genomics groups, can now be found at covid19cellatlas.org. This work was sponsored by the Chan-Zuckerberg Initiative....

Anti-Racism Resources

The following resources have been compiled from various sources. We would like to thank the authors of each for their work. The Shalek Lab takes no credit for any of the information provided via these links. 26 Ways to be...

COVID-19 Resources

Overview In light of the global effort to better understand the new SARS-CoV-2 virus, we and other researchers from the HCA Lung Biological Network and beyond have begun an initiative to investigate datasets from relevant tissues profiled as part of...

Immune Dynamics of Acute HIV Infection

The full expression matrix and associated metadata from the publication “Integrated Single-Cell Analysis of Multicellular Immune Dynamics during Hyperacute HIV-1 Infection” can be downloaded from the Alexandria Project hosted through the Single Cell Portal at the Broad Institute. Please visit...

Seq-Well TCR Enrichment

By affinity capture and amplification of TCR transcripts from whole-transcriptome libraries, TCR CDR3 sequences can be recovered from 3′-barcoded scRNA-seq libraries (e.g. Seq-Well, Drop-seq, etc.). This method can be applied post-hoc, allowing for the capture of additional information from archived...

Mapping Allergic Inflammation

Download Raw Data Download Metadata scRNA-seq data captured on Seq-Well for the core 18,036 cell data set as clustered and analyzed in Figure 1 of  “Allergic inflammatory memory in human respiratory epithelial progenitor cells“. Raw cell (columns) x gene (rows)...

scRAD: Single-Cell Reproducibility Across Donors

scRAD supports a reproducibility-driven framework for assessing the expression differences in single-cell RNA-Seq (scRNA-Seq) data collected from multiple donors. scRAD provides tools for: Reproducible gene module analysis – identifying axes of variation common across donors Irreproducible Discovery Rate (IDR) analysis (Q. Li...

Spicy Mezcal

In the Shalek Lab, we bring the same level of commitment and attention to detail we apply to our science to our cooking and cocktails. Here are recipes for 3 pepper-infused mezcals, ranked X, XX and XXX based on their...

Seq-Well

Seq-Well is a portable, low-cost platform for single-cell RNA sequencing designed to be compatible with low-input, clinical biopsies. We have recently published a manuscript detailing the development and validation of the Seq-Well plaftorm. Here, we provide an in-depth protocol and videos describing...
