Advanced course on Applications in Flow cytometry

Flow cytometry is used by many different applications from phenotypical characterization of cell sub-populations, analysis of phosphorylated proteins, cell proliferation, cell death to detection of very rare cell sub-populations. However, each of these methods has its challenges. This course gives users with a solid knowledge in flow cytometry the opportunity to attend lectures covering many of these applications. Newcomers to flow cytometry are advised to follow first the introductory flow cytometry course.
These lectures are given by experienced users and therefore not only give an introduction into these applications but also suggest protocols, discuss challenges and solutions.  Participants have the opportunity to discuss questions and, most importantly, have a contact person if they want to use an application for their own research.

Day 1:
Introduction: best practice in flow cytometry
Multicolor flow cytometry

Day 2:
Proliferation and cell cycle analysis; Valentina Casa

Day 3:
Data analysis and software packages
