Supplementary Material

These supplementary figures illustrate some of the additional visualization capabilities of flowFP. Figure S1 shows the visualization of a flowFPModel. Figure S1(B) shows the bins of a 2-dimensional model. Figures S1(C-F) show the use of transparency in the display of bins to reveal the underlying distribution depicted in dot-plot form. Figure S2 shows several methods of illustrating fingperprints in order to facilitate comparisons across instances. Figure S3 links fingerprint index with the spatial location of events in specific fingerprint bins by way of color. Finally, Figure S4 shows the visualization of informative features derived from Tube 4, as described in Section 3.2 of the text.
