ready mz Markup Language


General Information
From 2005-2008 there has existed two separate XML formats for encoding raw spectrometer output: mzData developed by the PSI and mzXML developed at the Seattle Proteome Center at the Institute for Systems Biology. It was recognized that the existence of two separate formats for essentially the same thing generated confusion and required extra programming effort. Therefore the PSI, with full participation by ISB, has developed a new format by taking the best aspects of each of the precursor formats to form a single one. It is intended to replace the previous two formats. This new format was originally given a working name of dataXML. The final name is mzML.

Implementing Databases (6)
Model Organism Protein Expression Database
Model Organism Protein Expression Database

MitoZoa is a specialized database collecting complete and nearly-complete (longer than 7 kb) mtDNA entries of metazoan species, excluding Placozoa. MitoZoa contains curated entries, whose gene annotation has been significantly improved using a semi-automatic reannotation pipeline and by manual curation of mitogenomics experts. MitoZoa has been specifically designed to address comparative analyses of mitochondrial genomic features in a given metazoan group or in species belonging to the same genus (congeneric species). MitoZoa focuses on mitochondrial gene order, non-coding regions, gene content, and gene sequences.
