Data-driven flow cytometry analysis

Wang, S. and Brinkman, R.R.

The emergence of flow and mass cytometry technologies capable of generating 40-dimensional data has spurred research into automated methodologies that address bottlenecks across the entire analysis process from quality checking, data transformation, and cell population identification, to biomarker identification and visualizations. We review these approaches in the context of the stepwise progression through the different steps, including normalization, automated gating, outlier detection, and graphical presentation of results.
