Article Title: New horizons in flow cytometry by cytomics and bioinformatics. A minireview.

Abstract: Cytomics is the study of cell systems (cytomes) at a single cell level. It combines all the bioinformatic knowledge to attempt to understand the molecular architecture and functionality of the cell system (Cytome). Much of this is achieved by using molecular and microscopic techniques and flow cytometry that allow the various components of a cell to be visualised as they interact in vivo.
Keywords: flow cytometry, -omic, cytome, cytomic, bioinformatics, microscopy, human cytome project.
