2016 New England Cytometry User Group Meeting

Thanks to all of you who attended the 2016 NECyto meeting this year, we hope you enjoy the t-shirts!  Jennifer Wilshire has shared her Forensic Flow talk and a quiz that has “Crimes of FACSing” in it that we didn’t get to during the meeting.  She welcomes you to use the slides and quiz in your own teaching and edit however you need.
