Summer Short Course in Flow Cytometry

Davis, California

Sponsored by the UC Davis Biotechnology Program and the UC Davis Flow Cytometry Shared Resource

July 17-21, 2017

This comprehensive flow cytometry course is enhanced with interactive laboratory sessions using many of our UC Davis cytometers as well as new instrumentation and software to teach you to a variety of established and new approaches in cytometry. Special guest speakers will introduce new trends in flow cytometry and explain the physical and electronic concepts in light collection and signal processing. Thanks to many generous sponsors, lunches and coffee breaks are provided to promote opportunities for interaction with the instructors and cytometry specialists. Please make plans to join us this summer for another fun week of flow education.

For registration details and fees, please go to the Biotechnology Program’s summer courses page at:

I am an evolutionary biologist and a Professor at U. C. Davis. (see my lab site here). My research focuses on the origin of novelty (how new processes and functions originate). To study this I focus on sequencing and analyzing genomes of organisms, especially microbes and using phylogenomic analysis
