This is an excellent text dealing exclusively with the many
problems of data analysis in flow cytometry. The beauty of
this text is that the writer assumes nothing and begins with
first principles. He then links each of the components
necessary to understand flow cytometry problems in
particular. So much of flow cytometry requires a good
understanding of data analysis and this book will help you
work through this area.
What is really neat about this text is that each section is handled as though
this is the first time a user is confronted with the area. Explanations abound
as to the premises upon which we base our understanding of
statistics and multivariate analysis.
Most useful is that the author discusses in detail some areas that have been
virtually ignored in most texts, such as enzyme kinetics.
The appendix is full of useful statistical tables and derivations for
those who want a little more detail. This is clearly an excellent text for those
wishing to understand a little more about data analysis in flow cytometry.
