Described here are the practical applications of flow cytometry in specific biological systems, ranging from cell biology to chromosome analysis and sorting. Three major areas of interest in cell and molecular biology are addressed: - Cell Activation and Biological Response. - Membrane-Ligand Interactions and Cell Identity. - Nuclear Components: Form and Function. Data management, expert systems and cell sorting techniques concerning all aspects of flow cytometry are also presented.
