BloodSpot is a gene-centric database of mRNA expression of haematopoietic cells. The web-based interface to the database includes three concomitant levels of visualization for a gene query; foremost is the expression across hematopoietic cell types, second is analysis of survival of Acute Myeloid Leukaemia patients based on gene expression, and lastly, the expression visualized in an interactive developmental tree. With the introduction of single cell data we have now also included an unbiased dimensionality reduction method to show gene expression over the continuum of haematopoiesis. The webserver includes a few select analysis functionalities, like Student's t-test, identification of correlating genes and lookup of whole genetic signatures, with the aim of making generation and testing of hypotheses quick and intuitive. The visualizations have been updated to accommodate new datatypes and the database has been largely expanded with RNA-sequencing datasets, both purified in bulk and at single cell resolution, increasing the number of single samples more than 10 fold, while keeping simplicity in presentation. The database should be of interest for any researcher within leukaemia, haematopoiesis, cellular development, or stem cells. The database is freely available at www.bloodspot.eu.
