viSNE now available on Cytobank

The Cytobank team has been working diligently to provide top tier analysis solutions for our users; viSNE in Cytobank is our most recent addition and we are very excited about what it has to offer.

What is viSNE? And how does it work?

viSNE is a tool for reducing high-parameter data down to two dimensions, making it easy for scientists to not only visually identify interesting and rare biological subsets, but also gate single cell events across different samples.

viSNE uses the Barnes-Hut implementation of the t-SNE algorithm (van der Maaten, 2008). Learn more about viSNE in this publication by the Pe’er lab: viSNE enables visualization of high dimensional single-cell data and reveals phenotypic heterogeneity of leukemia.  Amir el-AD et al. Nat Biotechnol (2013) 31(6):545-52.

Where is viSNE accessible?

viSNE is available on Premium and Enterprise Cytobanks. For more information about the different versions of Cytobank visit our website. Get started with a free trial of Premium Cytobank today and start running viSNE!

How do I use viSNE in my scientific workflow?

You can start learning from the viSNE section of the Cytobank support portal.

If you have any specific questions that aren’t outlined in our support articles, please get in touch via and we will assist you with any viSNE support required to get you up and rolling with your analysis.
