Thank you for this new iteration of Project Discovery. I loved exoplanets, loved proteins (and actually sometimes use the database we created back then) but now we once again on the biological side.
I am an immunologist. Not related to COVID, but nevertheless I know what cytometer is and how to analyze data it generates. And right now I have 4 improvement I want to suggest.
First of all - make more types of test samples. You feed us with all kinds of stainings (some pictures look familiar, but I won`t bet I know what is stained), which generate 1 cloud, 2, 3, 4 and so on. But you analyzed yourself just one easily distinquishable type. Those who just want profit from PD will rapidly learn that and the other samples from those high-rated ‘explorers’ will have only one small gate in the middle of nowhere. Take your time, make “test analyses” in all the clusters of images you have.
Secondly - give us more info. As was with star light curves, you gave in the corner possible types of stars. Here - give us info for stains - what was colored and why. It will improve understanding. But do this in the corner, so it won`t bother those who do not need this.
Third thing - give me more control while gating. I want to have ability to delete vertices by right-clicking on them while I do the gate. I want to auto-close the gate by right-clicking in space.
And lasty - give me more info while gating. I want to see intersections while I move the vertice, not when I finish. I want to see how the gate will look like if I close it now (faded line between pointer and first vertice will do).
Thank you. My suggestions on exoplanets on PD panel on FanFest 2018 were not taken to consideration. I hope you will hear me now.
