TT-CYTO: Tips and Tricks towards flow cytometry data FAIRness

04/06/2024 06/06/2024

Flow cytometry allows in situ analysis of marine phytoplankton at high frequency and single-cell level, providing huge data sets of abundance and optical properties related to pigment content and size proxy. The TT-CYTO workshop aims to enhance marine flow cytometry data accessibility and reliability, focusing on FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, Reusable) principles. It addresses discrepancies in manual gating and emphasizes establishing common guidelines, leveraging automated classification (as neural network) processes, and promoting accessible databases. The initiative seeks to standardise practices and enhance the role of flow cytometry as a core variable in marine ecosystem monitoring.
The TT-CYTO workshop is also an opportunity to tighten the actual in situ flow cytometry community even though most of us collaborate already together in national or international initiatives. However, the Euromarine workshop is a unique occasion to be together for 3 days, to share our knowledge and train early career scientists to face new challenges such as using artificial intelligence methodology for analysing data on phytoplankton diversity and contribute to the development of more accurate ocean models.
Interested participants can apply by contacting before the 29 of February 2024.
