FGED Projects

Highlights of the FGED Society's standardization projects included the following:

  1. MIAME - The formulation of the minimum information about a microarray experiment required to interpret and verify the results.

  2. MINSEQE - The development of the Minimum Information about a high-throughput SEQuencing Experiment standard for Ultra High-Throughtput Sequencing experiments.

  3. MAGE-TAB - A simple spreadsheet-based, MIAME-supportive format for microarray experimental data called MAGE-TAB, based on a richer XML data exchange and object modeling format known as MAGE.

  4. Annotare - A stand-alone desktop application to help bench biologists annotate biomedical investigations and their resulting data.

  5. Ontology - The development of ontologies for microarray experiment description and biological material (biomaterial) annotation in particular.
