General Information
This record was deprecated on Feb. 4, 2020 for the following reason(s): The project homepage no longer exists, and we cannot find a current project site. Please get in touch if you have any additional information.

The eXtensible Experiment Markup Language (XEML) is a XML dialect. The language provides a flexible way to formulate experimental setups, encompassing information about environmental parameters in a continuous timeline, individual germplasm information, sampling structure and handling from specified plant material, sample data mapping to heterogeneous databases and general annotations.
