Overview

The RMS is holding an interactive virtual course on flow cytometric data analysis.

This course, which will run over 4 half-days, will cover the basics of analysis for a number of different applications including antibody phenotyping, DNA and cell cycle kinetics, cell proliferation and death, and functional studies. There will also be the opportunity to explore high-dimensional analysis using dimensionality reduction and clustering techniques.

Delegates will be able to use data files (which will be provided) and follow along with directed analysis by the course demonstrators. Analysis will be performed in either FlowJo or FCS Express and Applications specialists will also form part of the demonstrator team.

This course is suitable for those who are relatively new to flow cytometry and who wish to expand their experience with applications and specific analysis.

This 90 minute Webinar will be a live introduction to Flow Cytometry. We will cover the principal tools needed to run a flow cytometry experiment – the fluorochromes we use and the cytometer. There will also be a short description of sample preparation. There will be time to ask specific questions and follow-up webinars can be arranged.

For any questions about this webinar please email stp-training@crick.ac.uk

This course will cover the fundamentals of flow cytometry and is aimed at those new to cytometry or who want to expand or consolidate their knowledge. The course can be run as either a whole day or as two half-day sessions to be flexible as possible with attendees schedules. The first session will cover fluorescence and fluorochromes, the workings of a flow cytometer and fluorescence compensation. The second session will look at panel design, sample preparation, running the sample, and data analysis and presentation. At the end of the course delegates will have a greater understanding of the principal tools used in a flow cytometry experiment and an appreciation of the factors that need to be considered to run a successful experiment. The course will be online and interactive with a series of polls and exercises designed to reinforce the learning objectives. Delegates will be sent course materials 24hours before the course.

This session will take place on 30 and 31 March from 14:00 - 17:30 both days. Please select 30 March when booking on eventbrite.
