ready Minimum Information About a Microarray Experiment


General Information
MIAME is intended to specify all the information necessary for an unambiguous interpretation of a microarray experiment, and potentially to reproduce it. MIAME defines the content but not the format for this information.

Implementing Databases (4)
BuG@Sbase is a microbial gene expression and comparative genomic database containing microarray datasets.

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.

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.

Immunology Database and Analysis Portal
The ImmPort system serves as a long-term, sustainable archive of immunology research data generated by investigators mainly funded through the NIAID/DAIT. The core component of the ImmPort system is an extensive data warehouse containing an integration of experimental data and clinical trial data. The analytical tools created and integrated as part of the ImmPort system are available to any researcher within ImmPort after registration and approval by DAIT. Additionally, the data provided mainly by NIAID/DAIT funded researchers in ImmPort will be available to all registered users after the appropriate embargo time. ImmPort, is the data submission portal where researchers upload, QC, and curate their data prior to sharing in OpenImmPort.
