Novel aspects of systems biology and clinical cytomics


  • Part of this work was presented at the 10th Leipziger Workshop “Systems Biology and Clinical Cytomics”, April 7–9, 2005, Leipzig, Germany.


The area of Cytomics and Systems Biology became of great impact during the last years. In some fields of the leading cytometric techniques it represents the cutting edge today. Many different applications/variations of multicolor staining were developed for flow- or slide-based cytometric analysis of suspensions and sections to whole animal analysis. Multispectral optical imaging can be used for studying immunological and tumorigenic processes. New methods resulted in the establishment of lipidomics as the systemic research of lipids and their behavior. All of these development push the systemic approach of the analysis of biological specimens to enhance the outcome in the clinic and in drug discovery programs. © 2006 International Society for Analytical Cytology
