Single cell HSNE paper published in Nature Communications27 Nov 2017More...
We are excited to announce that our paper Visual Analysis of Mass Cytometry Data by Hierarchical Stochastic Neighbor Embedding Reveals Rare Cell Types, previously available on BiorXiv has been published in Nature Communications. The paper describes the application of HSNE, a hierarchical SNE-based technique that allows the exploration of datasets too large for other SNE-based techniques (such as t-SNE) through a hierarchical representation, to single cell mass cytometry data. See the movie below for an exemplary exploration of a dataset consisting of 5 Million cells.
Paper on Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy is out17 Oct 2017More...
Our paper on Duchenne muscular dystrophy is published in Scientific Reports. The paper provides a comprehensive analysis of the expression patterns of dystrophin isoforms across human brain development uisng data from the Allen Brain Atlas, the Roadmap Epigenomics Consortium, and the FANTOM5 project. The results provide new insights into the cognitive phenotype associated with Duchenne muscular dystrophy.
