BIOL 535 - Cell Analysis by Flow Cytometry

Acquire flow cytometry skills (fluorochrome selection, sample preparation, data acquisition, data analysis, data interpretation). Design and conduct research projects requiring in-depth analysis of physical and chemical characteristics of cells acquired by flow cytometry. Discuss flow cytometry applications in various scientific fields. BIOL 435 and BIOL 535 are layered courses; students may not receive credit for both.


Learner Outcomes:
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Identify the appropriate fluorochrome (s) and describe the steps involved in sample preparation and analysis by flow cytometry.
  • Identify and apply the appropriate cell analysis methods to analyze previously acquired flow cytometry data.
  • Interpret basic flow cytometry data and report results of cell analysis by flow cytometry
  • Design research projects requiring flow cytometry among research tools, acquire, discuss and report data including those acquired by flow cytometry.
  • Select from highly rated journals a recently published article (3-year-old max) containing relevant flow cytometry data and discuss the findings reported
