ready MIAME Notation in Markup Language


General Information
MINiML (MIAME Notation in Markup Language, pronounced 'minimal') is a data exchange format optimized for microarray gene expression data, as well as many other types of high-throughput molecular abundance data. MINiML assumes only very basic relations between objects: Platform (e.g., array), Sample (e.g., hybridization), and Series (experiment). MINiML captures all components of the MIAME checklist, as well as any additional information that the submitter wants to provide. MINiML uses XML Schema as syntax.

Models and Formats

Implementing Databases (3)
Gene Expression Omnibus
The Gene Expression Omnibus (GEO) is a public repository that archives and freely distributes microarray, next-generation sequencing, and other forms of high-throughput functional genomic data submitted by the scientific community. In addition to data storage, a collection of web-based interfaces and applications are available to help users query and download the studies and gene expression patterns stored in GEO.

Database of Genotypes and Phenotypes
The database of Genotypes and Phenotypes (dbGaP) archives and distributes the results of studies that have investigated the interaction of genotype and phenotype.

SICAS medical image repository
The Sicas Medical Image Repository is a centralized storage system where the data such as Images, Segmentations, SSM can be used to build and shared statistical shape models. Dicom, ITK based images and statistical models in the statismo format can be stored on SMIR.
