Hierarchical Modeling for Rare Event Detection and Cell Subset Alignment across Flow Cytometry Samples

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 3708855
PMID: 23874174
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1003130

[…] and does not appear to either provide a statistical model (e.g. for goodness-of-fit calculations) or methods for alignment of cell subsets across different samples. In contrast, flowClust and FLAME (FLow analysis with Automated Multivariate Estimation) both use a statistical mixture model approach for density estimation and clustering. Both packages are likely to be widely used, since flowClust […]
