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.
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.
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. More »
