New Cytometry Study Findings Recently Were Reported by Researchers at Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research (Dynamics in the microbial cytome - single cell analytics in natural systems)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Biotech Week -- Data detailed on Cytometry have been presented. According to news reporting out of Leipzig, Germany, by NewsRx editors, research stated, "Natural microbial systems are highly dynamic due to the short generation times of the comprised organisms and their rapid and distinct reactions to changing environments. Microbial flow cytometry approaches are capable techniques for following such community dynamics in a fast and inexpensive way."

Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from Helmholtz Center for Environmental Research, "Newly developed bioinformatics tools not only enable quantification of single cell dynamics, they also make nearly on-line evaluation of community attributes possible, enable interpretation of community trends, and reveal possible constraints that influence community structure and function. Microbial flow cytometry is poised to make the microbial cytome accessible for ambitious ecosystem studies."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Functions of cells within the cytome can be determined either by cell sorting in combination with other omics-approaches of choice or by simple correlation analyses."
