Cytoflow: Quantitative Analysis for Flow Cytometry
Mammalian Synthetic Biology Workshop
Saturday, May 5, 2018 - 5:30pm to 6:30pm
To address these limitations, we developed Cytoflow, a Python package for quantitative analysis of flow cytometry data. Cytoflow includes low-level modules that programmers can use to manipulate, analyze and visualize cytometry data, as well as a graphical user interface that lets non-programmers perform analyses and share workflows with colleagues. Importantly, the quantitative approach enabled by Cytoflow and similar tools enables more reliable engineering of synthetic gene networks: the approach reveals circuit dynamics, highlights process failures in quantification and characterization, and enables model-guided circuit design.
