This is Part I of a blog series where Cytobank’s Director of Informatics, Katherine Drake, PhD, will discuss important aspects of using CITRUS to your full advantage. She’ll help you understand when you should use CITRUS, what makes it so powerful, and what you need to know to choose the best setup options for your data.
Since we implemented CITRUS in Cytobank last fall, many scientists have taken advantage of its automated biomarker discovery pipeline to answer questions and find predictive models across a wide range of diseases. Here, I’ll discuss its capabilities and review some examples to help you imagine how you can use CITRUS, too.More »
We recently hosted a very popular webinar, “Placing viSNE in Your Toolbox” featuring special guest Dr. Anna Belkina of Boston University School of Medicine. More than 500 investigators registered for our event to learn about cutting-edge tools and techniques for optimizing results from high-dimensional cytometry datasets.
Tyler Burns is a Cancer Biology Ph.D Candidate in Dr. Garry Nolan’s lab at Stanford and a consultant for Cytobank. Tyler’s work in the Nolan lab is focused on developing novel computational methods for high-parameter single cell analysis.
Cytobank has released version 5.5.0 with enhancements to our API, enabling more flexible and functional workflows that leverage Cytobank’s secure infrastructure and cloud-based compute and storage. Among the enhancements are new API endpoints for viSNE, CITRUS, SPADE, sharing, Sample Tags, and compensation.
At Cytobank, we’ve seen emerging needs among scientists and research organizations the world over that are driving the development of our API. These needs often demand functionality beyond that given by basic browser-based analysis sessions, with themes including connecting the Cytobank platform directly to other information systems, allowing batch processing and chaining of native functionality, and supporting pull and push of data, configurations, statistics, and attachments from Cytobank to support external pipelines, algorithms, and studies.
In this article, we present a variety of workflows highlighting how the Cytobank API can increase the efficiency and velocity of research efforts. Illustrated workflows include:
We were fortunate to attend the American Society of Hematology meeting earlier this month in San Diego. It brought together leading clinical scientists to present and discuss advances in malignant and non-malignant hematology.
Get Bigger, Better Insights in the Cloud with Our New Enhancements to viSNE.
Take advantage of the scalable compute available in the cloud with our latest enhancements to viSNE. Now Cytobank’s cloud-hosted platform can run up to 20x more events than other locally-run solutions. Fully optimize the resolution of your results by fine-tuning Iterations, Perplexity, and Theta.
