other such data.
The MGED group is a grass-roots movement whose goal is to facilitate
the adoption of standards for DNA-array experiment annotation and data
representation, as well as the introduction of standard experimental
controls and data normalization methods. Includes: 1. Minimum Information
About a Microarray Experiment. MIAME aims to outline the minimum information
required to unambiguously interpret microarray data and to subsequently
allow independent verification of this data at a later stage if required.
2. MAGE, a data exchange format and object model for microarray experiments.
3. The development of ontologies for microarray experiment description
and biological material (biomaterial) annotation in particular, and
4. The development of recommendations regarding experimental controls
and data normalization methods.
