However, analysis and interpretation of these high-dimensional data poses a significant technical challenge. Here, we present cytofkit, a new Bioconductor package, which integrates both state-of-the-art bioinformatics methods and in-house novel algorithms to offer a comprehensive toolset for mass cytometry data analysis. Cytofkit provides functions for data pre-processing, data visualization through linear or non-linear dimensionality reduction, automatic identification of cell subsets, and inference of the relatedness between cell subsets. This pipeline also provides a graphical user interface (GUI) for ease of use, as well as a shiny application (APP) for interactive visualization of cell subpopulations and progression profiles of key markers. Applied to a CD14 ? CD19 ? PBMCs dataset, cytofkit accurately identified different subsets of lymphocytes; applied to a human CD4 + T cell dataset, cytofkit uncovered multiple subtypes of T FH cells spanning blood and tonsils. Cytofkit is implemented in R, licensed under the Artistic license 2.0, and freely available from the Bioconductor website, https://bioconductor.org/packages/cytofkit/. Cytofkit is also applicable for flow cytometry data analysis. ? 2016 Chen et al.||Source Title:||PLoS Computational Biology||URI:||https://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/161907||ISSN:||1553734X||DOI:||10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005112|
