Table of Contents
A bonus feature of the online version is that most of the figures have links to the data file from which they were derived. If you have downloaded the free FCS Express Reader, you can open the analysis layout that was used to create each figure. In some cases, extra information about the figure is supplied, including other data files. The reader can experiment with the data, changing the position of the gates, markers, quadrants, etc.
