About the Data Standards: Flow and Mass Cytometry category

This category exists for specific discussion around the HIPC Data Standards for capturing Flow and Mass Cytometry/CyToF data, described further here:

HIPC defines the standard for specifying cell population definitions and names. For details, please see HIPC Standards Working Group Cell Population Specification. In addition to raw data in .fcs files, HIPC requires the submission of derived data (e.g., the cell population frequencies). For CyTOF and flow cytometry, these are submitted using the associated derived data templates available on the ImmPort Website
