Flow cytometry principle with main focus on practical data analysis by flowjo software
Talking about flow cytometry technique, various topics may cross the mind of a researcher: FACS technique, cell viability, stem cell and cancer cell phototype, autoimmune diseases, diagnosis and follow-up of leukemias, etc. In general. Flow cytometry, as one of the fascinating techniques of research and clinical laboratories, can be more practical and useful than we think. Using this technique, it is possible to study the surface and intracellular markers (examining everything that happens in and out of the cell). The good news is that using this technique, it is possible to study different types of eukaryotic and prokaryotic cells. As a result, fortunately the target audience of this workshop includes all the different trends in the field of biology.
Definitely to interpret its data, we need to learn software related to raw data analysis. In this workshop, we intend to first talk about the principles and basis of flow cytometry technique and of course its various applications, then in the practical part we get acquainted with flowjo software, its statistical analysis and analysis of its charts (Gating topics, histograms, quadrants). The main focus of this workshop is specifically on cell cycle studies, apoptosis (Annexin-PI) and immunophenotyping.
Finally, all participating members will be able to design projects based on various tests in the field of flow cytometry technique and analyze the resulting data statistically and graphically.
