We present two web apps for interactively performing common tasks with single cell RNA sequencing data: scdefg for interactive differential expression and wormcells-viz for visualization of gene expression. We made these tools available with public C. elegans datasets curated by WormBase at They can also be readily deployed for use with any other datasets using the source code available at and at
