Free Seminar + Workshop on the Use of Flow Cytometry and Cell Sorting for the Analysis of Microbial Populations

Are you interested in studying microbes in complex communities by quantifying and sorting individual cells? Foods of Norway is pleased to invite you to a seminar and workshop led by Prof. Dr. Susann Müller from the Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research - UFZ who will present her latest work on the study of microbial community dynamics through flow cytometry.

Flow cytometry and cell sorting have applications in many fields of research including animal and plant science, immunology, phycology, bioprocess technology, and microbiology. The seminar is open to all interested students and researchers. Those who would like to gain a deeper understanding of the analysis of flow cytometry data are welcome to sign up for a participatory workshop led by Dr. Müller which will cover general considerations for the design of flow cytometry experiments, common pitfalls to avoid, and the application of analysis software and techniques developed in her group. All workshop participants will need to bring a laptop with the Windows Operating System.
