Edits to 'https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.qrr33y' by 'The FAIRsharing Team' at 12:18, 28 Nov 2016 (approved): 'description' has been modified: Before: The flow cytometry data file standard provides the specifications needed to completely describe flow cytometry data sets within the confines of the file containing the experimental data. In 1984, the first Flow Cytometry Standard format for data files was adopted as FCS 1.0. This standard was modified in 1990 as FCS 2.0 and again in 1997 as FCS 3.0. We report here on the next generation Flow Cytometry Standard data file format. FCS 3.1 is a minor revision based on suggested improvements from the community. The unchanged goal of the Standard is to provide a uniform file format that allows files created by one type of acquisition hardware and software to be analyzed by any other type. After: The flow cytometry data file standard provides the specifications needed to completely describe flow cytometry data sets within the confines of the file containing the experimental data.

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.
