Image of the Week
And it's time for HuBMAP's Image of the Week! This week's image was generated by Julia Laskin's student Hang Hu at TTD Purdue. It represents a new segmentation method they developed to make segmentation and region of interest maps of the mass spec imaging data from mouse kidney, but it can be used on any tissue type. It will really help you map out your interest in tissue maps!

Save the Date: HuBMAP Cell Atlas Visual Analysis Workshop
The HuBMAP Tools Component at Harvard Medical School will be hosting a virtual workshop for members of cell atlas projects and the broader community. The goal of the workshop is to discuss and prioritize interactive visualization and analysis functionality that should be integrated into the HuBMAP Portal and other related data resources. The information gathered in this workshop will be incorporated into a roadmap for the HuBMAP Portal.
The event will include a presentation of the tools that are currently available in the HuBMAP Portal and future directions.
Oftentimes the software behind the HuBMAP Data Portal is overshadowed by the graphical interfaces that allow exploration of the tissue data. Here, we'll shine a light on work completed by various groups who are deep in the software development process.
This week we're featuring the CODEX analysis pipeline using Cytokitpipeline, a product of Ziv Bar Joseph's Tools Component at CMU, which visualizes CODEX data. Major contributors to this product are Matt Ruffalo and Maria Keays.
