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 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.
