Summary

ShinySOM offers a user-friendly interface for reproducible, high-throughput analysis of high-dimensional flow and mass cytometry data guided by self-organizing maps. The software implements a FlowSOM-style workflow, with improvements in performance, visualizations and data dissection possibilities. The outputs of the analysis include precise statistical information about the dissected samples, and R-compatible metadata useful for the batch processing of large sample volumes.
