ready Minimal Information for QTLs and Association Studies Tabular

Abbreviation: MIQAS-TAB

General Information
The MIQAS set of rules accompanied with the standardized XML and tab-delimited file formats will serve two goals: to encourage research groups that wish to publish a QTL paper to provide and submit the necessary information that would make meta-analysis possible. to allow easy interchange of data between different QTL and association analysis databases. Databases that implement the standardized XML format will typically write an import and an export filter to read data from and dump data into that an XML file. This is the same approach as used for the exchange of sequences between NCBI, Ensembl and DDBJ at the early stages of the Human Genome Project.
