Pluto Product Update - January 2023

Happy New Year! We're already kicking off 2023 with a bang. Here's the latest new feature run-down✨

Level-up your presentation game

Improve productivity with smart slides & live data

Getting ready to present? Say goodbye to static slides and "I'll have to check on that data point and get back to your later." Use Pluto's presentation mode to focus in on each finding while exploring them interactively with your team.

Presentation mode in Pluto

Some creative use-cases for presentation mode include:

  • Presenting preliminary results live (and interactively!) during a lab meeting
  • Presenting final results to internal or external stakeholders
  • Telling a scientific story in order, one plot at a time

Learn more about presentation mode or try it for yourself.


Sneak peak! Scientific Storyboards

Tell your story, faster than ever before

Coming soon in Pluto: a whole new experience for creating multi-panel figures or "storyboards" for telling YOUR scientific story. Want to try it out? Sign up to be an early tester by replying to this email.

Auto-detect RNA-seq strandedness

Smarter pipelines = more time for discovery

Not quite sure whether your RNA-seq data was forward, reverse, or unstranded? Select the new "Auto-detect" option and the pipeline will automatically handle the QC and counting accordingly.

Latest Pluto Learning Series

Understanding analyses & experiment types

Differential expression analysis is a powerful tool used to identify genes or transcripts that are differentially expressed between two or more conditions or sample types. This technique is commonly used in the field of genomics, transcriptomics, and proteomics to study the molecular mechanisms underlying different biological processes, such as disease development, response to treatment, or adaptation to different environments.
