Workshop: PCA, 12.02.2021, online
On 12.02.2021, an online meeting was held (via Microsoft Teams platform) to introduce Principal Components Analysis (PCA), which belongs to a group of chemometric methods that allow the identification of variability in an analyzed data set. In the Team Net project, this method is used to identify spectral differences between various types and subtypes of leukaemic cells and normal blood cells. The meeting was attended by diploma students, Ms. Agnieszka, Ms. Kinga and Ms. Maja, and interns, Ms. Sviatlana and Ms. Patrycja, who work in our Team and members of the Raman Imaging Group. The meeting was organized as part of the Team Net project and was led by members of the Team, Ada, Ola, Patrycja and Ania. During the meeting, Ada presented the theoretical background of PCA and discussed how to obtain a scatter plot and loading plots. Ola talked about how to interpret the results obtained, and how to avoid mistakes during the analysis. Patrycja showed how to perform a PCA analysis in Unscrambler software. The meeting was organized in the form of a online workshop.
