  2. • Introduction to Cell Annotation Platform (CAP) • Motivation •

    Architecture & Use Cases • Questions & Feedback After Presentation Contact: evan_biederstedt@hms.harvard.edu 2 Agenda
  3. Motivation https://science.sciencemag.org/content/368/6490/497 Researchers manually examine prominent molecular patterns in light

    of prior biological knowledge, and annotate cells. Problem There’s no standard source of accumulated annotations with associated molecular data for researchers to explore
  4. 4 Motivation NK Cells Cytokines Monocytes Problem • Individual research

    groups end up annotating (potentially millions of) cells manually, which results in cells with inconsistent terms and labelings between groups. • This approach cannot scale. • There's no medium for researchers to compare annotations across studies, potentially resolving con f l icting results/ nomenclatures. • No central location to access annotations used in publications.
  5. Cell Annotation Platform (CAP) • Platform to create, explore, and

    store annotations • Allow users to compare annotations (with associated molecular pro f i les) within and across datasets • Provide a medium for researchers to converge upon a consensus nomenclature • Standardize collections of annotations, empowering researchers to reproduce analyses • Enable automated cell annotation methods
  6. 6 Main Components Data Upload & Publish Interactive Annotation UI

    CellCards View Homepage •CAP Homepage •Data Upload & Publish •Interactive Annotation UI •“CellCards” View
  7. Published Annotations Interactive UI “CellCards” View

  8. View Annotations Interactive UI • View molecular data • Di

    f f erential expression analysis • Access embeddings “CellCards” View • CellName de f i nitions • Molecular signatures + marker genes • Related datasets
  9. http://vitessce.io/ Annotate Datasets via Interactive UI Annotation • CellName: cell
