ready Minimum Information about Flow Cytometry

Abbreviation: MIFlowCyt

General Information
The Minimum Information about a Flow Cytometry Experiment (MIFlowCyt) establishes criteria for recording and reporting information about the flow cytometry experiment overview, samples, instrumentation and data analysis. It promotes consistent annotation of clinical, biological and technical issues surrounding a flow cytometry experiment by specifying the requirements for data content and by providing a structured framework for capturing information.

Related Databases (2)
FlowRepository is a database of flow cytometry experiments where you can query and download data collected and annotated according to the MIFlowCyt standard. Data are generally associated with peer reviewed manuscripts.

Immunology Database and Analysis Portal
The Immunology Database and Analysis Portal (ImmPort) data repository was created for the exploration of clinical and basic research data on immunology and associated findings. ImmPort intends to promote effective data sharing across the basic, clinical and translational research communities. It collects data both from clinical and mechanistic studies on human subjects and from immunology studies on model organisms. The ImmPort ecosystem consists of four components: private data, shared data, data analysis, and resources-for data archiving, dissemination, analyses, and reuse.
