the HTC Vive; this video shows you how to
use the different buttons on the HTC Vive
An extended run-through showing you
how to use the key features of
Each box has a dataset in it. Load
a dataset by throwing the cells from
a box into the loading machine.
Type a gene name with the keyboard
to color graphs by the expression of
that gene. The recent searches are saved and can
easily be reused.
Create a free hand selection to
create custom groups with the selection
tool using your hand. The user uses his/her thumb to
change color with the controller's
round touchpad. Changing color defines a new group.
Calculate differentially expressed
genes and generate a heatmap from
the selection you made. The heatmaps can be moved
and resized freely. Multiple heatmaps
can be made in the same session for simultaneous
Generate transcription factor
networks from the selection you made.
Multiple networks can be made in the same session
for simultaneous viewing. Networks can be enlarged
for more detailed viewing. Arcs to show common gene
pairs between networks can be spawned.
If index sorting has been used the
graph can be colored by the
expression of a selection cell surface marker using
the menu. Subgraphs can be constructed that uses the
FACS measurements as dimensions.
If attributes have been defined the
graph can be colored by one or more
attributes such as cell type. Subgraphs with only
the selected attributes can be constructed.
The hide tool allows the user to
temporarily hide graphs or networks.
Things that are hidden are placed on top of the menu
and can be brought back
The delete tool is used to remove
objects from the scene that are no
longer needed. As a sort of safety measure, the
graphs can not be deleted.
The draw tool can be used to draw
lines to show others what you are
looking at, or to make notes.
The laser tool can move graphs,
heatmaps or networks just by pointing
the laser at them and then grabbing them. It can
also be used to make things fly away
and become larger, effectivily putting them in the
background. Graphs, heatmaps and
networks that are put in the background this way can
be brought back anytime.
