Data Templates

  1. Data uploads are done in private workspaces where access control is specified by the data providers. Please contact us at BISC_Helpdesk@niaid.nih.gov to set up a private workspace. Data is shared from private workspaces at the discretion of the data providers and their funding agency.
  2. ImmPort staff can help you understand which Data Upload Templates you need, how to complete them and in what order. Please contact us at BISC_Helpdesk@niaid.nih.gov
  3. An online description of the upload templates is available to explain the format and content of the templates and the order with which to upload the templates.
  4. The complete set of ImmPort Upload Templates and the User Guide is available as a zip file.
  5. Descriptions and specifications of the ImmPort Upload Templates are available as a pdf file.
  6. Example data upload packages are available for review.
  7. An interactive graphic of the ImmPort Data Model is available
  8. A set of decision tree diagrams is available here.
  9. For transcription profiling data sets, the HIPC Standards Working Group Transcription Profiling standards are recommended.
  10. For flow cytomtery, mass cytometry or CyToF data sets, please see the standards recommendation of the HIPC Bioinformatics Standards Working Group Cytometry guidelines.
  11. Please save spreadsheet .xlsx templates as tab delimited .txt files and upload the txt file version.
  12. You may upload one or more files or a folder (directory) of files.
  13. An example of a data provider's open source ImmPort upload preparation utility is available at the GitHub project Immpload
