A sigma factor toolbox for orthogonal gene expression in Escherichia coli

Nucleic Acids Res
PMCID: 5829568
PMID: 29361130
DOI: 10.1093/nar/gky010
call_split See protocol

[…] 853 medium. Cultures were then resuspended and diluted in filtered phosphate-buffered saline for flow cytometry analysis. All data were processed with a custom-written R script mainly using flowCore, flowPeaks and ggplot2 packages. Automated gating was based on the sfGFP reference FL and forward scatter (). The data reported in this study are generated by asinh transformation of the red over green […]


Single and multi subject clustering of flow cytometry data for cell type identification and anomaly detection

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 4980779
PMID: 27510222
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-016-0201-x

[…] comparisons and Pearson coefficients is presented in []. However, this approach requires a huge computation time as it requires a pairwise distance matrix of order n2, where n is the number of cells. flowPeaks, an approach based on spatial exploration of histograms and finite mixture model is presented in []. Despite its computational time efficiency, flowPeaks suffers from a drop in accuracy with […]


An Introduction to Automated Flow Cytometry Gating Tools and Their Implementation

Front Immunol
PMCID: 4515551
PMID: 26284066
DOI: 10.3389/fimmu.2015.00380

[…] fer more flexibility in this regard (, ). Some software packages use a combinational approach including k-means clustering and model-based algorithms to maximize efficiency and accuracy [for example, flowPeaks ()], while others include hierarchical clustering in their combined approach [for example, Citrus () and Spade ()].One of the most recently published software packages, flowDensity (), offer […]


Flow Cytometry Bioinformatics

PLoS Comput Biol

[…] rithms (e.g., flowClust and FLAME ), density-based algorithms (e.g., FLOCK and SWIFT), graph-based approaches (e.g., SamSPECTRAL ), and, most recently, hybrids of several approaches (flowMeans and flowPeaks ). These algorithms are different in terms of memory and time complexity, their software requirements, their ability to automatically determine the required number of cell populations, and t […]
