PointCloudXplore now supports the latest version of the 3D gene
expression atlas created by the BDTNP. In contrast to previously
available 3D gene expression data the atlas now also contains
information about the expression of genes at different time-steps. The
GUI of PointCloudXplore has been improved to ease interaction with this
new type of data. See below for more detailed information.
6.3 Gene Selection Window
The Gene Selection Window has been redesigned in order to ensure efficent interaction with new 3D gene expression atlas. The main new features are:
New "Gene Selection Table" that gives an overview of all genes and time-cohorts available in the loaded PointCloud file.
The "About this PointCloud" window has been added to the main GUI of
PointCloudXplore to allow easy access to additional meta-data available
in the currently loaded PointCloud file. The window can be accessed
using the according button in the left part of the main window containing the physical views.
6.5 Cell Magnifier
New option to sort the entries in the bar-graph view according to stage/name or name/stage.
Only the bars of those genes enabled in the Gene Selection Window are shown in color bars. All other genes are now shown in dark gray.
The scatter-plots now make use of the new "Gene Selection
Table" to select the genes to be displayed in the Master
The file format of cell selectors has been changed. Now TAB is
used as separator instead of SPACE. If previously stored cell selectors
should still be used then the files must be converted accordingly.
