ready MicroArray Gene Expression Tabular Format

Abbreviation:MAGE-TAB


General Information
Sharing of microarray data within the research community has been greatly facilitated by the development of the disclosure and communication standards MIAME and MAGE-ML by the FGED Society. However, the complexity of the MAGE-ML format has made its use impractical for laboratories lacking dedicated bioinformatics support. We propose a simple tab-delimited, spreadsheet-based format, MAGE-TAB, which will become a part of the MAGE microarray data standard and can be used for annotating and communicating microarray data in a MIAME compliant fashion. MAGE-TAB will enable laboratories without bioinformatics experience or support to manage, exchange and submit well-annotated microarray data in a standard format using a spreadsheet. The MAGE-TAB format is self-contained, and does not require an understanding of MAGE-ML or XML

Implementing Databases (3)
BuG@Sbase
BuG@Sbase is a microbial gene expression and comparative genomic database containing microarray datasets.

ArrayExpress
ArrayExpress is a database of functional genomics experiments that can be queried and the data downloaded. It includes gene expression data from microarray and high throughput sequencing studies. Data is collected to MIAME and MINSEQE standards. Experiments are submitted directly to ArrayExpress or are imported from the NCBI GEO database.

Stanford Microarray Database
The Stanford Microarray Database is a repository a microarray based gene expression and comparative genomics data. This resource is no longer being maintained please us public repositories NCBI Gene Expression Omnibus or EBI Array Express
