Weasel for Display and Analysis of Flow Cytometry Data

Weasel is a computer program for off-line display and analysis of flow cytometry data.  Versions are available for Macintosh, Windows PC and for other systems with Java (v1.7 or better) installed. Weasel has a long heritage in the area of exploratory data analysis through innovative techniques in visual displays. 

See also the companion program ACluE for cluster analysis identification and delineation of sub-populations in multi-parameter data.
