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.
Read more

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.
Read more

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 viewing.
Read more

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 anytime.

Read more

The draw tool can be used to draw lines to show others what you are looking at, or to make notes.
Read more

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.
