The Human Reference Atlas: High-Resolution, Functional Mapping of
Vector, and Meta Datasets
MC-IU team within the HuBMAP
The ultimate goal of the HIVE Mapping effort is to develop a common coordinate framework (CCF) for the healthy human body. This framework will support cataloging different types of individual cells, understanding the functions of and relationships between those cell types, and modeling their individual and collective function. During the initial three years of HuBMAP, the MC-IU team has built many elements of the CCF. We co-organized the construction of ASCT+B Tables and implemented a CCF Ontology. We collaborated with NIAID at NIH on the design of a 3D Reference Object Library. Lastly, we developed three interactive user interfaces. The CCF ASCT+B Reporter supports the authoring and interactive review of ASCT+B Tables. The CCF Registration User Interface (RUI) supports uniform tissue data registration across organs and labs. The CCF Exploration User Interface (EUI) supports exploration of semantically and spatially explicit data—from the whole body to the single cell level.
