Figure 5Interpretation and decision flow in PluriTest.

The Pluripotency Score informs the user on how strongly a model-based pluripotency signature is expressed in the samples analyzed. The Novelty Score indicates the general model fit for a given sample: if it is low, the analyzed sample is well represented in the current PluriTest data model, if the Novelty Score is high and the sample also has a high Pluripotency Score, further functional assays might be necessary determine the identity of the sample.
