Cell signaling normally governs checkpoints throughout development, and alteration of signaling plays a driving role in human diseases, such as cancer. Phospho-specific flow cytometry can characterize signaling at the network level in individual cells. This technique is especially useful in comparing subsets of cells present within heterogeneous primary tissue samples. Day 1 of the phospho-flow workshop will begin with tutorials and recent example applications of the technique in the morning. In the afternoon, students will conduct a phospho-flow stimulation experiment. Day 2 will begin with staining and collecting the samples from Day 1, followed by tutorials on how to analyze experiments from the course and other data sets with Cytobank (http://www.cytobank.org/).
