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.

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 ImmPort system serves as a long-term, sustainable archive of immunology research data generated by investigators mainly funded through the NIAID/DAIT. The core component of the ImmPort system is an extensive data warehouse containing an integration of experimental data and clinical trial data. The analytical tools created and integrated as part of the ImmPort system are available to any researcher within ImmPort after registration and approval by DAIT. Additionally, the data provided mainly by NIAID/DAIT funded researchers in ImmPort will be available to all registered users after the appropriate embargo time. ImmPort, is the data submission portal where researchers upload, QC, and curate their data prior to sharing in OpenImmPort.
