Fly Cell Atlas – A single-nucleus transcriptomic atlas of the adult fruit fly

Tabula Drosophilae. In this single-cell atlas of the adult fruit fly, 580,000 cells were sequenced and >250 cell types were annotated. They are from 15 individually dissected sexed tissues as well as the entire head and body. All data are freely available for visualization and download, with featured analyses shown at the bottom right.

For more than 100 years, the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster has been one of the most studied model organisms. Here, A team led by researchers at Stanford University present a single-cell atlas of the adult fly, Tabula Drosophilae, that includes 580,000 nuclei from 15 individually dissected sexed tissues as well as the entire head and body, annotated to >250 distinct cell types. The team provides an in-depth analysis of cell type–related gene signatures and transcription factor markers, as well as sexual dimorphism, across the whole animal. Analysis of common cell types between tissues, such as blood and muscle cells, reveals rare cell types and tissue-specific subtypes. This atlas provides a valuable resource for the Drosophila community and serves as a reference to study genetic perturbations and disease models at single-cell resolution.
