Can I just use FlowRepository to store data without analysing or annotating them online?

Yes, FlowRepository may be used by any individual for any purpose in compliance with our terms of service. and privacy policy. Your journal or funding agency typically require data and annotations (possibly MIFlowCyt compliant) to be available, but they usually don't specify that you would have to use the FlowRepository to annotate or analyse your data online. So the analysis and annotation portions of FlowRepository are optional. If you perform analysis on your personal computer, you can upload the analysis files to FlowRepository using the Attachments section of the Experiment Details Page. This allows you to keep all the analysis files and flow cytometry (FCS) files in one place. In addition, you may earn some MIFlowCyt compliance score points if you do so.
