DOI: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1006236

[…] minutes at room temperature. cells were scrapped and data was acquired using bd facsdiva acquisition software in bd facs canto ii flow cytometer (bd). data was analyzed and plotted using r packages flowcore and flowviz., heparinized blood was immediately diluted in 1:1 ratio by volume with dpbs. diluted blood was layered on ficoll-paque (himedia) and centrifuged at 2000 rpm for 45 min. […]

[…] using the ‘area’ option. flow cytometry data were exported from the acquisition program (facsdiva) in the fcs3.0 format with a data resolution of 218. a custom r programme was written (using flowcore, flowviz and flowdensity bioconductor packages; see ) to calculate statistics for each file. for calculating the coefficients of variation, cytometry files were processed as follows: […]

[…] and measured through an emission filter with bandpass of 530/40. for each sample, 100,000 events were counted at a rate between 1000 and 3000 events per second. data was processed by r (3.2.5) with flowcore, flowviz and flowdensity packages., if indole production is an integral part of the cellular response to heat stress, both tryptophan import and the indole production enzyme (tnaa) must, […]

[…] between isogenic lines with and without marker (ebc5 vs. ebc47, ebc37 vs. ebc59, etc.) to measure the potential marker effect in each background. measurements were analysed in r using the package flowcore. due to unequal variance among groups, statistical significance was measured using a kruskal–wallis test with a dunn’s post hoc test for significance., we calculated the selection […]

[…] to their different pigmentation pattern ()., in general at least 5000 events were collected for data analysis, with only a limited number of exceptions. flow cytometric data were analyzed with the flowcore-package and visualized by flowviz-package of r-software. prior to analysis data were bi-exponentially transformed., the accumulation of enzymatic resistant empty cell walls was measured […]
