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.

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.
Since the Cytobank platform is used by many who attended and presented, we were proud to see and be a small part of the exciting science. Highlights for us were:
Leaders in the field are utilizing the Cytobank Platform to discover more and are presenting these findings at American Society of Hematology’s 2016 Meeting this weekend, one of the most important clinical meetings world wide, driven by explosive growth in immunotherapy related research.
Last Call: Register for Our CITRUS Webinar Oct 19.
Only hours remain to register for our CITRUS webinar. Don’t miss out! Join us Wednesday, October 19th at 9AM PDT for CITRUS: Applications and Insights from the Experts.
Learn more about how Cytobank’s newest tool can help you automate and accelerate biomarker discovery. Hear from our team members and a panel of experts:
- Our Cytobank scientists will review how to get started quickly with CITRUS in Cytobank with a live demo.
- Gabi Fragiadakis, Ph.D., will share practical applications and show how she used CITRUS to find biomarkers of clinical recovery in surgery patients.
- CITRUS algorithm creator, Rob Bruggner, Ph.D., will answer your questions during a live Q&A session.
Always listening to our user feedback, we heard your requests to complete your viSNE workflow by overlaying Populations to uniquely color the viSNE continents. Our latest release brings you a new plot type configuration we call Dot Overlays that allows you to do this, and also lends itself to traditional back-gating approaches that allow you to see child populations in the context of ancestors.
Dot Overlays allow you to overlay not just Populations, but any of the Figure Dimensions within a single Dot Plot. Now you can compare Populations, Timepoints, Conditions, Individuals, and any dimension of your choosing within Dot Overlay plots. Just drag any figure dimension into the second (overlaid) position. See how your time course stacks out, compare your stimulations/titration data, or just see how populations sit in the context of each other (traditional back-gating). Visit our knowledge base for the full scoop on how to set up Dot Overlays, including a video tutorial.
Data retention: key to NIH policy for successful grant funding
Data sharing and preservation are central components of successfully-funded grant submissions to the NIH. Since 2003, the National Institutes of Health has maintained the NIH Data Sharing Policy and Implementation Guidance, and even released a brochure to help guide those seeking a successfully funded grant. These policies emphasize that “Data should be made as widely and freely available as possible while safeguarding the privacy of participants, and protecting confidential and proprietary data.”
