The need for bioinformatics expertise in flow cytometry is increasing exponentially as the size and complexity of flow datasets grow.  I thought it would be worthwhile to post links to some tools and resources that may be beneficial for bioinformaticians getting starting with flow cytometry.  The list is highly biased and far from complete, so please feel free to add/comment.
