Hi flowers,
    I am curious if the geometric mean is acceptable for calculating the 'area' of a bimodal or highly skewed (or pick an ugly distribution) population which is not easily discriminated? I acquire in log so I'm hesitant to use the arithmetic mean. Also, I use FCS Express and I'm trying to avoid exporting every gate in listmode and doing it the hard way...
