ready Minimum Information Required for A Glycomics Experiment - Sample Preparation

Abbreviation: MIRAGE - Sample Preparation

General Information
MIRAGE (Minimum Information Required for A Glycomics Experiment) was created to improve the quality of glycomics data in the scientific literature. The sample preparation guidelines are designed to include all aspects of sample generation, purification and modification from biological and/or synthetic material. Fundamentally, the application of MIRAGE sample preparation guidelines will lead to improved recording of experimental protocols and reporting of understandable and reproducible glycomics datasets. In addition, these guidelines are considered as a common basis for any further MIRAGE reporting guidelines in order to keep the requirements for data analysis short and consistent.

UniCarbKB is an initiative that aims to promote the creation of an online information storage and search platform for glycomics and glycobiology research. The knowledgebase will offer a freely accessible and information-rich resource supported by querying interfaces, annotation technologies and the adoption of common standards to integrate structural, experimental and functional data.

UniCarb-DB is a curated database of glycomic mass spectrometry fragment data.

A repository of glycans with associated MS information and spectra. The repository allows researcher to submit their glycomics MS data for public display. The data is not curated by other than then data provider. Curated data will be transfered to UniCarb-DR

GlycoPOST is a mass spectrometry data repository for glycomics. Users can release their "raw/processed" data via this site with a unique identifier number for the paper publication. Submission conditions are in accordance with the Minimum Information Required for a Glycomics Experiment (MIRAGE) guidelines.
