Free Webinar – Bench to Bytes: Translating Bench Research to the Clinic with Machine Learning Tools

Join us Wednesday, November 29th for our next free webinar.

BloodCover-Kordasti-420pxLearn from experts how machine learning tools present a more expansive view of your data and facilitate prognostic discovery.

Special guests Dr. Shahram Kordasti and Dr. Richard Ellis of King’s College London show you how they leveraged Cytobank to identify predictors of therapy response.  

In this webinar, they will present data and methods that led to their key discoveries in the clinic, as detailed in Blood Journal.

Don’t Miss Our Next Webinar:
Create & Optimize Your Data Analysis Pipeline

Join us Wednesday, September 27th for our next free webinar. In this field report, you’ll get a walkthrough of how a successful Mass Cytometry core facility applied Cytobank and data analysis best-practices to streamline and grow their operations.

CytobankWorkflow

Cytobank’s machine-learning algorithms enable faster, more comprehensive analysis of complex life science datasets for single cell and bulk data resolution. Making the leap from manual analysis to Machine Learning-assisted analysis may seem daunting, but it doesn’t have to be.

We’ll learn from guest presenter Dr. Vinko Tosevski, head of the Mass Cytometry Core Facility at The University of Zurich how he leveraged Cytobank in his operation to build an efficient data analysis pipeline.

Maximize Your Insight with Machine Learning Algorithms
and NanoString® 3D Biology™ Technology

Scientists across many therapeutic areas are striving to solve complex biological problems by measuring multiple analytes, thinking that together these data will power deeper discovery. However, analyzing these data independently is less effective and more time-consuming than analyzing them together. Cytobank’s new DROP feature allows scientists to apply machine learning algorithms to many data types, including these datasets, and to develop integrated insights quickly.

With bulk data, unsupervised machine learning algorithms on Cytobank can help you identify clinically relevant groups of samples by combining information from all of your markers at the same time. We’ll illustrate that here with Nanostring® 3D Biology technology, which simultaneously analyzes up to 800 SNVs, RNA, and proteins and phospho-proteins from the same sample. In this example, the assays used profile 104 SNV and small InDels, 192 RNA, and 28 total and phospho-proteins in 144 samples.

Getting the Most out of CITRUS Part I: Imagine What You Can Do

This CITRUSsnapshotis 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 »
