PRESS RELEASE: Cytobank Awarded NIH Grant to Scale its Cloud-based Machine Learning Platform for Accelerating Immunotherapy Translational Research

 Novel data analysis methods will automate biomarker discovery
to predict patient response in clinical trials

Mountain View, Calif. – August 1, 2108 – Cytobank has beenNIHLogo awarded a $1.3M Phase II SBIR grant from the NIH to scale and add more machine learning algorithms to its popular cloud-based informatics platform. In use at many leading academic institutions and the top ten global pharmaceutical companies, Cytobank’s research platform enables faster, more comprehensive analysis of the high-dimensional single cell datasets captured in immunotherapy clinical trials. There are greater than 1,000 active clinical trials for immunotherapies in oncology alone. More »

Webinar Recording: Explore Hidden Cell Populations with cytoclustR

TregsviSNEShahramOur recent Webinar with Dr. Shahram Kordasti and Bioinformatician Thanos Mourikis explored cytoclustR, a new tool they developed with the Cytobank API.

Dr. Kordasti began by reviewing how he set up his experiment pipeline to best identify Treg populations, as outlined in his article featured on the cover of Blood Journal.

Thanos followed with a step-by-step tutorial on how to use cytoclustR with SpadeTreeShahramSPADE in Cytobank to distinguish and report on hidden cell populations that might otherwise go unnoticed with manual gating strategies.

Manage Experiments More Efficiently with Cytobank 6.3.1

storagedetailCytobank’s latest release introduces functionality to help you better manage your account storage and more easily clone experiment features

Improved Storage Management
You can now see how much storage space you are using, and can filter by experiment size in the inbox. Understand quickly which of your experiments may be more resource-intensive, cull unused or duplicate experiments, and keep your storage usage in check.

Improvements to cloning and sharing (learn more)
Select which components from your clonedetail-2experiments to clone. Carry over sharing permissions, compensation matrices separately from gates, panels separately from sample tags, and more. You can also choose whether to give your PI full access when you clone experiments. These features are also fully-supported in the Cytobank API.

Iterate and Refine Faster 
You can now quickly cancel SPADE, viSNE, and CITRUS runs in progress to correct mistakes or refine settings.

New Release 6.3.0: Do More with Exploratory Data Analysis

viSNE is a powerful tool for exploratory data analysis. Samples or cells are visible in one view or “map” based on their similarity across the n-dimensions used to generate the map. Cytobank’s latest release introduces features to facilitate data exploration and the reproducibility of your results.

Our new expanded features can help investigators use viSNE in translational or clinical research studies to both uncover new discoveries and repeat these exciting findings.
