FlowJo v9 Manual


Graph Types

There are a number of different types of graphs which FlowJo can show you in a graph window. (Special graph types, such as Kinetics and Cell Cycle, can be displayed by launching the appropriate platform).

Once you have a graph window open, you can easily switch between graph types either by selecting the type (and/or options) from the "Graph" menu, or by opening the options disclosure triangle at the bottom of the graph window.

When you close a graph window, FlowJo remembers exactly what you displayed (axes, options, and graph type); the next time you open that subset for display, FlowJo will show you that graph! (The exception to this rule is if you open the graph window using the "Open Parent" (up-arrow) button in a graph window: this function opens the graph window as it looked when you created the gate for that subset.)

There are two univariate display types, and four bivariate displays. Each has several different options that can result in a wide variety of different graphics. Some are more suitable for publication in print, and some are more suitable for generating presentation slides.

The following types of graphs can be generated in the graph window:

You may also wish to look at the pages on copying graphics to other programs and generating publication-quality graphs.
